Strangers' Hall

In the centre of medieval Norwich, on Charing Cross, a museum of domestic history - housed in a Grade 1 listed building, parts of which date back to the 1300s.

Much like the Geffrye Museum in Shoreditch, individual rooms set out - and dressed with objects - in the style of particular historical periods.

We spent about two hours on our visit, but do check the limited pattern of opening times...
