Norwich Cathedral Nave – Tickets (£5 each) can be booked via the online booking system on the Cathedral website.
In late summer the nave of Norwich Cathedral will be dominated by the huge skeleton of “Dippy” the Diplodocus, the centre piece of the Natural History Museum’s “Dippy on Tour” exhibition. This enormous dinosaur is just one, extremely large, example of the hundreds of thousands of fossils that chronicle the biological history of Earth over millions of years and the evolution of life upto the present day. Dippy’s presence in the cathedral is a provocation and an opportunity to explore the history of ideas linking dinosaurs, evolution and religion from the time of Charles Darwin up to the present day.
