Norwich City of Ale Walking Tours – Historic Pubs and Strangers and Huguenots
This year the 11th Norwich City of Ale festival, which runs from Thursday, May 26 to the end of June, is marking the impact of the Strangers, religious refugees from the Spanish Netherlands, who arrived in Norwich between 1566 and 1578.
