The Dragon Hall Heritage
Dragon Hall, King Street, Norwich is a unique, Grade 1 listed, medieval trading hall dating from around 1430, renowned for its spectacular timber crown-post roof and intricately carved and painted dragon. It is one of the ‘Norwich Twelve’, the iconic buildings of Norwich, and is symbolic of Norwich’s historical role as a major textile production centre and as a city of national importance.
It is also important as an example of a building built by one 15th century entrepreneur, Robert Topper, which was effectively ‘lost’ after his death and re-discovered and restored in the 20th century. To find information on these and many other aspects of Dragon Hall, go to ‘History of Dragon Hall’.
