A new walking tour company has launched in Norwich and it celebrates the city's colourful history in a theatrical style. 

Siv Sears started Norwich Story Walks after previously working for other local guided tour businesses.

He is currently running the Weird and Wonderful Story Walk on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm to 9pm and it starts at the City Hall steps.

By the summer, Mr Sears will launch two new tours, which will be Her Story and His Story walks, celebrating female and male historical figures respectively. 

Mr Sears added: "The reaction so far has been very positive and people think it is great value.

"From first-time visitors to locals who know the city inside out, everyone will get something out of it."
