Connect Eureka

Connect Eureka - the idea...
The Eureka Wellbeing Photography are offering visitors to the wonderful city of Norwich a unique opportunity to join a small group of local people on a photography walk within the city centre area. 

Taking Notice! Eureka members have their own unique angle
on what is wonderful

Who We Are...
Eureka Wellbeing Photography is a small community-based group that has been running since 2011. We explore Norwich, cameras in hand, and look for interesting things/angles that other people might miss. That is why our slogan is, 'find wonder as you wander'. 

Although our members are brought together around a common interest in photography, we find that through our gatherings we:

  • Connect with others
  • Keep learning together
  • Take notice of the world around us
  • Be active: getting a bit of exercise through walking
  • Give: share ideas, perspectives - and, often, laughter too!

In other words, the Eureka experience is as much about improving our wellbeing as it is about taking photographs. 

To get a feel of our work and what we're about, please feel free to explore our blog:

Experiencing Norwich...
We are very proud of our beautiful city and look forward to giving an insight into some of its wonders to visitors. Joining one of our walks will give you a unique opportunity to ask questions about Norwich to folk who live here. Eureka walks are always relaxed and informal, and we pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly. 

Discovering Norwich's History...
Although we are not a history group, many of our members have a keen interest in the Norwich's history and heritage. Indeed, one of our members is a qualified guide with the National Association for Interpretation and the founder of the Norwich Community History Club. We should therefore be able to offer you an insight into the city's fascinating history as we go.

Why we are offering this?
As we mentioned above, an important motivation for Eureka members is giving. We aim to positively contribute to our community and hope that showcasing our city to visitors will do that. We are also genuinely keen to meet new people and welcome them to Norwich. In our experience, bringing people from different backgrounds together in a relaxed setting is really enriching for all concerned. 

How much does it cost?
We do not charge for this, although, having experienced a Eureka walk, if people want to make a donation towards the running of the group we will be happy to accept. Having said that, there is absolutely no expectation on our part that you will do so.

How to book a place?
We are reserving two places for visitors to join us on every other week  (details to be posted here soon). To express an interest, please email Colin on 

Where and When Do We Meet? 
We meet at 10:00 in Cafe Bar Marzano located on the ground floor of the Forum in the city centre on alternate Fridays. We always begin with a very relaxed drink and a chat (trans. = conversation). At about 10:30 we head off to wherever we are going that day and usually finish by c12:00
