After the Norman Conquest of 1066, Norwich Market was moved to its current location, in an area known as 'Mancroft', to give it more space. By 1300 the market had grown substantially and sold vegetables, fish, meat, bread, cloth, shoes, rope, livestock and many other commodities; all from their own designated place. Today, Norwich Market remains one of England's largest and finest open air markets, selling all kinds of different goods. The market is open Monday to Saturday, with around 200 traditional stalls covered with a canopy of stripped canvas.

Norwich Royal Arcade runs from the market place towards Norwich Castle and was designed by architect George Skipper in 1899. It has been described as a fragment of the Arabian Nights dropped into the heart of the old city! Among its many interesting features are some specially designed glazed tiles manufactured by Doulton, with images of Peacocks and flowers. Today the Royal Arcade contains a row of fine timber fronted shops.
