11/10 & 19/10: Boardman and Skipper Walking Tour

This 2-hour guided walking tour celebrates the architectural legacy of the great Norwich architects Edward Boardman and George Skipper. The tour starts outside Surrey House (Aviva) and finishes outside Princes Street United Reformed Church.

Boardman was active in Norwich from 1860 to 1900 and was heavily involved in the development of Victorian Norwich. His work can be seen in hospitals, factories, offices and chapels that demonstrate the confidence and prosperity of the late 19th century city.

George Skipper’s key buildings in Norwich date from 1895 to 1910. Described as Norwich’s Gaudi, by the late Poet Laureate, John Betjeman, Skipper was known for his exuberant style. Enjoy the magnificence of Surrey House, the art nouveau gem that is the Royal Arcade, Jarrold’s eye-catching store and more.
