The Maids Head is a 4-star luxury hotel in Norwich city centre, opposite the famous Norman Cathedral and just around the corner from Norwich Castle. With its central location, the Maids Head Hotel is a great base for a walking tour of the historic city of Norwich with its boutique shops and attractions.

Originally owned by the early Bishops in the day of William the Conqueror, the Maids Head Hotel dates back to the 13th Century and is the oldest hotel in the UK. A blend of architectural styles and unique spaces, such as an oak-panelled Jacobean snug bar and period character rooms, make the Maids Head Hotel the perfect complement to a city steeped in history.

Choose from 45 wines, some rare, to enjoy by the glass in the award-winning WinePress restaurant. The WinePress offers a special five-course tasting menu with wine pairing, including Norfolk black chicken matched with the Côtes du Rhône spicy French red, ‘Les Coumbarelles.’

Follow in the footsteps of Maids Head Hotel’s illustrious guests – Queen Elizabeth I, the ‘Black Prince,’ Catherine of Aragon, Horatio Nelson and Edith Cavell. Norwich railway station is just a mile and Norwich airport is three and a half miles away. Ample free parking on-site.
