ON FOOT /
BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT
Heathfield is at the junction of Cannell Green and Heathgate, near Gurney Road.
If you’re walking to Heathfield from the station or from Prince of Wales Road and then along the river, please see the By train section.
If you’re walking to Heathfield from the city, a very pleasant route is to go past the Cathedral and the Law Courts, then through the car park by the Adam and Eve pub (NR3 1RZ).
** Cross the river using the curved Jarrold pedestrian bridge. Turn right onto the riverside footpath (go left down some steps and then left again under the bridge).
The path takes you past some office buildings and through a car park. Follow it, turning left around the health club, then cross the main road at the lights.
The path crosses the green. Turn right onto Cannell Green, and Heathfield is about 50m away, the last building on the left. The main entrance is the white door with a large ’62’ by it, beyond the long bike shed in the car park.

If you’re coming from the University of the Arts, follow the riverside path. Go past the the Ribs of Beef, cross both Fye Bridge Street and Whitefriars. You’ll see the large building of St James’s Mill on the other side of the river, and some new apartment blocks.
Follow the instructions above from ** once you reach the curved Jarrold footbridge.
Norwich railway station has regular services to and from London, taking about 2 hours.
It takes 15 minutes to walk to Heathfield from the station along Riverside/Bishop Bridge Road (A147). If you have luggage, you may prefer to take a bus (no 23 or 24) just one stop along Riverside.
We recommend that you don’t try to cross the road at Kett’s Hill roundabout, especially if you have luggage – the traffic can be heavy and fast. Instead, stay on the same pavement, turning left along Barrack Street. There’s a pedestrian crossing after about 100m.
Take the footpath ahead of you that crosses the grassy area to Cannell Green. Turn right along Cannell Green and Heathfield is the last building on your left.
The main entrance is the white door with a large ’62’ by it beyond the long bike shed.
There are regular services from Victoria Coach Station, and the journey takes a little over 3 hours.
Exit Norwich Bus Station (see map) leaving the ticket office to your left. You’re going slightly downhill, not uphill, or up the steps going through the pedestrian entrance. If you come out through the Travelodge, turn round and go back the other way.
Turn left into Surrey Street, and then right into St Stephens Street. Go straight on at the crossroads. Take either a 25 or a 26 bus from the bus stop scross the road from Barclays Bank.
The bus will take you to the railway station – follow the By train directions from there.
