10) Norwich Cathedral

Built in 1096, this remarkable building has been used as the set for countless films and documentaries, and it’s not hard to see why. Vistors can explore inside the church or stroll through the magnificent cloisters (bring your camera!) free of charge. If you’re especially lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the pair of peregrine falcons that live on the spire.
