Another portion will be creating a more complete heritage experience in Norwichtown capitalizing on eight historic buildings and landscapes and branding the Norwich tourism experience to create an authentic experience that links Norwich’s history through a series of themes. The marketing effort will help promote “visitor ready” assets such as the Slater Memorial Museum.
