Norwich is a wonderful fusion of the modern and historic, one complementing the
other. Like any great city its centre is easy to walk around and has a river at its heart.

It is the only English city in a National Park, the Norfolk Broads & is located less than 20 miles away from the nearest beach. Norfolk boasts 90 miles of coastline, all
unspoilt, clean, safe & family-friendly.

As well as being the most complete medieval city in the UK, it has a flourishing arts, music and cultural scene, superb independent as well as High Street shopping, lively restaurants, bars and nightlife and a heritage that is a delight to explore. It was also England's first UNESCO City of Literature – this is a city of stories!

The city’s historic street layout is wonderfully haphazard, but there’s no need to get lost, just look for the obvious landmarks – the spire of the majestic Norman Cathedral, the domineering castle on its tall mound and City Hall's clock tower.

If it's sights and attractions you're after, then Norwich doesn't disappoint. The city has the largest permanent undercover market in Europe, many museums and theatres, ancient pubs, cobbled streets such as Elm Hill, Timber Hill and Tombland, ancient buildings such as St Andrew's Hall, half-timbered houses such as Dragon HallThe Guildhall and Strangers' Hall, the Art Nouveau delight of the 1899 Royal Arcade, a jumble of medieval lanes and a delightful riverside along the winding Wensum.

 

Open six days a week, Norwich Market is a vibrant riot of colour and commotion that's surrounded by some of the city’s great historic buildings, including the flint 15th century Guildhall. Underneath the rainbow-coloured roofs you will find stalls selling everything imaginable – at the very least we'd suggest a cone of chips, liberally doused with salt and vinegar. Go on – you're on holiday!

The city is also a shopper's paradise, with two shopping centres and four department stores, many independent stores and boutiques in the quaint Lanes and Timber Hill. Rated in the Top 10 UK shopping destinations, you'll soon realise why.

To properly appreciate the juxtaposition of contemporary and past, stand on Millennium Plain between the hangar-like, glass-fronted Forum (home to the city's library and TIC) and the 15th century St Peter Mancroft, the largest church in Norwich.
