Major shopping malls set amidst stone-cobbled streets and independent stores, Norwich provides a unique shopping experience and is the only location in the UK outside of London to house four national department stores whilst also hosting England's largest six-day open market. Perhaps it is no wonder that Norwich was voted one of the top ten places to shop in the UK.
Norwich has two excellent shopping malls Chapelfield and Castle Mall. The recently opened £275 million Chapelfield has over 90 shops and restaurants with the only House of Fraser and Apple Store in the region. Recently opened stores include Ark, Ask, Yo Sushi, Hollister and Superdry.
Norwich Lanes offers one of the UK's best selection of independent shops, bars and restaurants. There are loads of specialist and lifestyle shops, including fashion boutiques, quirky craft designers, vintage clothing outlets, second hand book dealers, antiques merchants and many more. There are also regular craft fairs, collectors fairs and flea markets.
Some of the shopping highlights are featured in our Student Life in Norwich video below and further information can be found on the Visit Norwich website.
