  • Good walking place with good views by the river, old tower ruins, no cows though, ha ha! Short cut to railway station 
  • Built between 1398 and 1399 in response to the threat from France and English rebels, the tower was intended to defend the north-eastern approach to Norwich with hand cannons and bombards. 
  • Well it's all in the title of the review really. Just by the river and worth a look if nearby. Fascinating history and makes a good photo.

  • A beautiful medieval artillery tower set in beautiful surroundings. The Riverside Walk is one of my favourite ambles through Norwich, and Cow Tower sits pretty much half way along the route. A great place to have a sandwich and get some peace during lunch break.
  • Lovely spot in summer to sit and watch the world go by. Part of the Riverside Walk which is always a tranquil route around the city.
  • Tranquil setting by the river with interesting history for contemplation.
  • Great area for Pokemon along the river side walk
  • A great walk along riverside, and a few pokestops along the way as well
