Norfolk Passport

The Assembly House, Norwich

The Assembly House is a gorgeous Georgian gem perfectly located in the heart of Norwich. Designed by architect Thomas Ivory in 1754, the House is famous for its historic elegance, glittering celebrations, beautiful bedrooms and legendary Afternoon Teas.

"...The Assembly House, one of the UK’s loveliest boutique hotels, offers a storming afternoon tea..." TV presenter and journalist Grace Dent, writing in The Guardian newspaper.

We set out to create the kind of establishment we'd love to find in one of the UK's most beautiful cities, one where old-fashioned hospitality is valued, food is delicious and where beautiful surroundings can be found hidden around every corner.

Our 15 characterful bedrooms are like jewellery boxes, each one different, many filled with genuine antiques, some with gardens, some their own balconies, all boasting a generous sprinkle of glamour and magic.

With a restaurant that opens daily for breakfast and Beforenoon Tea, lunch or one of our famous themed Afternoon Teas, menus are by director and renowned Norfolk chef Richard Hughes. The House hosts stunning weddings, impressive events, and standout conferences and is the home of The Richard Hughes Cookery School, the inaugural winner of The British Cookery School of the Year.

Come and immerse yourself in the world of The Assembly House: we can't wait for you to be our guests!
