A fine city

Norwich is a fine city. Steeped in history and surrounded by gorgeous countryside, it's also surprisingly busy. Whether it's unique shopping experiences, vibrant nightlife or a rich cultural community you're looking for, Norwich – voted safest UK city – has it all. Always a good place for a night out, the city offers a range of high quality but affordable restaurants, stylish cafe bars, theatres, nightclubs and festivals.

Unique shops and cafes

Norwich was recently voted as one of the top 10 cities for shopping in the UK, and with two large shopping centres, major department stores, and Norwich Lanes, a thriving independent area full of eclectic boutiques and unique shops and cafes, you can see why.

Rural landscapes and medieval architecture

Norfolk is home to a wealth of stunning beaches and seaside towns – from the bright lights and amusements of Great Yarmouth, to charming postcard towns and villages like Cromer and East Runton. There's also a great deal of history within Norwich itself, and the city is home to over 30 medieval churches, two cathedrals, and a Norman castle.

There's no shortage of things to do, whatever your age or interest, and all this is only a short train journey from London and Cambridge.
