Victorian Valentines Cards from the Museum of Norwich 600x400


Win a unique and romantic Valentine's for two!

Love is in the air at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist! To celebrate the launch of their brand new weddings offer, the Cathedral is offering one lucky couple the chance to win a twilight tower tour for two this Valentine’s day – Tuesday 14th February!

One lucky winner will receive a twilight tower tour for two up to the dizzy heights of the top of the cathedral, so they can ‘toast the rooftops of Norwich’ with bubbly and canapés from what might be the most romantic spot in the city. There’ll also be a professional photographer on hand so if anyone gets down on one knee the moment will be captured forever. This is a wonderfully romantic way to kick off your Valentine’s evening!

To find out more about weddings at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, call 01603 724381.
