Go Underneath the Museum of Norwich

Underneath the Museum of Norwich at the Bridewell lies a secret… the largest vaulted undercroft in the city. These rooms were part of the original medieval house and were used for storage. The undercroft was also used to hold inmates when the building was a Bridewell (a house of correction and prison) and an inventory of 1813, lists ‘posts and chains.
