UEA is a place that not only has an accessible and beautiful campus, it’s also close by to Norwich’s city centre and countryside, meaning your days can be accompanied by a range of activities.
Here are just some of the options you could go for when you’re ready for some time away from your study:
UEA Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts
Interested in art events and exhibitions? Then you may not have to look as far as you think. UEA’s campus is home to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, which houses a range of artwork and sculptures. They regularly hold events and exhibitions, and with a café, it’s a place to get cultured as well as study.
Somewhere to eat
If you’re heading into the city for some day-time shopping, then head to Frank’s Bar where you can enjoy a platter and a drink whilst enjoying the cool décor. Norwich can also cater for your dietary needs with its Gluten Free Shop and Café! And if you’re just after a good cup of tea, there are a range of places to go, from Biddy’s Tea Room to The White Lion Café. Take your pick!
Norwich gives a great retail experience with two large shopping centres – Castle Mall and intu Chapelfield, a diverse high-street, several department stores and Norwich Lanes. Just a short journey from UEA campus, you’ll be able to shop in no time. There’s shops for all tastes AND budgets.
Norwich Market is certainly one of the city’s quirks, selling a range of items such as records and books. Known as one of the country’s biggest outdoor markets, it’s worth a visit when you’re next there.
Sports and leisure
If you’re keen to get involved in sporting activities during your time here at UEA, there are many options for you in Norwich. Whether you’re in to football, rowing or skiing, be sure to explore the area to see what’s about! UEA's Sportspark also provides many sporting activities for you to try!
Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery has to be visited at least once whilst at UEA. If you want to brush up on your history, look at art or just fancy a day out with friends or family, this will keep you occupied! There’s lots to see and you can even go on tours to see the dungeons if you fancy it.
