The unofficial capital of East Anglia, Norwich is truly a city bursting with art, culture, heritage and shopping. With a modern city centre and lots of interesting historical architecture and charm, Norwich is a fantastic fusion of both old and new just waiting to be unearthed.
Encompassing 1000 years of the city’s history, Norwich 12 is a set of outstanding heritage buildings which together showcase the best cultural and social attractions that are well worth a visit. Why not immerse yourself in Georgian splendour at the Assembly House, admire the beautiful stained glass at the St John Baptist Cathedral or explore the palace’s history and more at the Norwich Castle. Furthermore you cannot miss the magnificent Norwich Cathedral, one of the finest in England and a true landmark dominating the city’s skyline with its impressive Cloisters and Cathedral Close.
Enjoy the more contemporary side of Norwich within this modern pedestrianised city which is bursting with wonderful restaurants, theatres and shops. In fact Norwich is increasingly becoming known as one of the best UK cities for shopping with fantastic independent shops complementing its high street favourites and superb 900 year old open-air Norwich market. Why not step back in time as you explore the beautiful cobbled streets of Elm Hill, marvelling at its half-timbered houses, art galleries, interesting shops and coffee shops.
Venture outside Norwich to see what wonders the Norfolk coast offers. Not only will the Norfolk Broads wow you with its beauty and impressive waterways but you will fall in love with the East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden’s and its wonderful collection of exotic flowers and woodland plants. Also head to the beloved seaside town of Great Yarmouth to enjoy the endless family fun along the town’s Golden Mile promenade and fantastic sandy beaches.
