    East of England - Norfolk, Great Yarmouth

    This charming merchant’s house, on the quayside in Great Yarmouth, was built around 1596 by Benjamin Cowper. Over the years the building has been subject to various alterations and changes of use, until it was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1949.

    The house is famous for its connections with Oliver Cromwell, who is said to have frequently visited his friend, John Carter, a prominent local merchant who purchased the house from Benjamin Cowper in 1635. The premises became a regular meeting place for Parliamentarians during the Civil War, and it is here, allegedly, in November 1648, that the fate of Charles I was decided.

    Please note: Elizabethan House Museum is managed by Norfolk Museums Service.

    East of England - Norfolk, Norwich

    Norwich Castle is a medieval royal fortification in the City of Norwich, in the English county of Norfolk.

    It was founded in the aftermath of the Norman conquest of England, when William the Conqueror (1066–1087) ordered its construction because he wished to have a fortified place in the important City of Norwich. It proved to be his only castle in East Anglia. It is one of the Norwich 12 heritage sites. The castle now houses the Norwich Castle Museum, which holds significant objects from the region, especially archaeological finds.
