Café 57

Lunch your way with Café 57’s freshly made subs and salads.

Located in the Julian Study Centre on Chancellors Drive.

The subs are fantastic, great price and really tasty. Highly recommend the BBQ breakfast sub – wouldn’t have thought egg mayo would go so well toasted with bacon and cheese, but I was so wrong!

Bike Shop (Dr Bike)

Get cycling with help from the team at Dr Bike.

Located behind Congregation Hall.

They have free-to-use equipment, which includes specialist items that are expensive to buy. The staff are really friendly and diagnose problems for free, as well as fixing anything that you can’t, all for a reasonable price. Great service.

Taxi

Norwich has many options for travel, most notable of which is the ever-present taxi. From the iconic Black taxis to the minicab.

Drop off points throughout the campus.

Lots of reasonably priced taxi companies. You can also give your name and campus card number if you don’t have cash, so you can get home safely after a night out and the university will charge you back.

A well-stocked bar, great food and one of the city’s best beer gardens.
