The William 4th Inn and Bed and Breakfast in Norwich offers a warm welcome to this historic city.
Originally the cottage home of a Mousehold shepherd, The King William IV now stands in the garden grounds,
where it is thought to have been a tavern for at least 150 years recorded by Joseph Manning's 1834
survey of licensed premises.
Telegraph Lane in those days would have been no more than a footpath leading from Gas Hill to Yarmouth Road.
The lane named after the semaphoring system used in 1807, when the site of the water tower was as a vantage point to
receive signals from Great Yarmouth should the French Invade.
Steeped in atmosphere and peppered with unique architectural treasures Norwich with its magnificent
Norman Cathedral dominating the sky line boosts the second tallest spire in the country. Norwich is proud of its past and
present status and it’s not hard to see why. Its ancient buildings and city walls make it the
most complete medieval city in Britain today, still offering a rare blend of historic interest and modern sophistication.
