Hunting for gems amongst the many antique stores in Norwich is always a great activity for the weekend. 

Even the BBC seem to think so, as Antiques Roadtrip were recently spotted filming in the city..

There is always so much to discover, and the buildings themselves are often just as wonderful to marvel at.

Here are five antiques stores in Norwich to dive deep into:

Where: Magdalen Street, Norwich, NR3 1JE  

Across the road from Looses Emporium is Aladdin’s Cave, and the store certainly lives up to its name. Here you can find lots of second-hand furniture, antique ceramics, pottery and stamps and coins. They have recently added a large record collection to their offerings, so vinyl fans should definitely have this on their list.

All Saints Antiques Centre 

Where: All Saints Street, Norwich, NR1 3LG 

Housed in a redundant medieval church, All Saint’s hosts collections from over 25 dealers. Antiques and memorabilia greet you at the entrance, but as you venture further, you’ll find a large vinyl selection at the back. If vintage clothing is your thing, there are racks on the ground floor and also a separate shop on the first floor.

Elm Hill Antiques and Interiors 

Where: Elm Hill, Norwich, NR3 1HG 

Situated in the cobbled streets of Elm Hill, the store seems well-placed amongst the historical surroundings. Elm Hill antiques and interiors specialises in early 20th century furniture, notably art deco pieces. A wide range of antiques, ceramics and pictures are also available.

Tombland Bookshop 

Where: Tombland, Norwich, NR3 1HF 

Over two floors, this shop has an abundance of second-hand antiquarian oddities to explore. Their section on local folklore is particularly interesting. Even if antique books aren’t your thing, it's worth a visit just for the decor, as the 15th-century wooden beams and old-book smell makes it feel like you’ve stepped into a bookshop in Diagon Alley.
