Byfords Café in Holt
Byfords is a famous café, deli and posh B&B in the centre of Holt. If you enjoy people watching, its a great place to have a coffee and just sit and watch people wander by! The building is thought to be one of the oldest buildings in the town and pre-dates the great fire in Holt of 1708. The premises traded as a hardware store and ironmonger’s for over 100 years under the ownership of the Byford family, from which the building took its name. The building was restored during the later part of the 20th century, when much of its character and features were re-instated.

Caley's in the Norwich Guildhall
Norwich Guildhall replaced the long-standing toll-house; a small thatched building used for collecting the toll from the market, and dating from the 13th century. The Guildhall was used for both civic and judicial functions for some five hundred years. The very distinctive design of fine chequered flint work on the outside shows the city was amongst the largest and wealthiest cities in England. Today, it has a lovely cafe situated inside.
