According to the old adage Norwich has a pub for every day of the year, and a large number of those boozers are located in the city centre.

Use the arrows to navigate your way through the history of these classic pubs.

Now a branch of WH Smith, The Fruiterers Arms stood opposite Norwich Market from the 16th century until December 1989.

The pub's former site is a listed building and had a six-day licence during its trading days.

Still standing in Orford Place, The Lamb Inn has been a regular watering hole for city folk for decades, even changing its name to the Rat and Parrot for a number of years. 

The former coaching inn is particularly recognisable for its large courtyard and secretive entrance.
