Societies and Clubs

Find your tribe and follow your passion by joining societies and clubs.

UEA Students’ Union, Union House, University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ.

Clubs and societies are a great way to enhance your university experience. They’ve helped me socialise outside my course mates, are fun and have boosted my CV without taking away from my studies.

A chilled spot for coffee, dinner or drinks with friends.

When a group of us visited, we sat upstairs where the walls are lined with artwork and antique books. Staff were quick to take our orders and happy with special requests. A lively atmosphere, but quiet enough to chat comfortably.

Cinemas

From the biggest blockbusters to art house films, you’ll find a movie to suit your mood at Norwich’s cinemas.

Various locations around the city.

The ODEON is one of my top picks. It has great screens, sound and seating. There are a number of other cinemas in Norwich, including Vue and Cinema City. Recently prices have been cut, but the experience is still premium.

Dive into Norwich’s past at the castle and its museum.

Castle Hill, Norwich, NR1 3JU.

There’s a grand collection of things to see and lots to discover on every visit. I enjoyed the natural history, artwork and the dungeons. There’s also lots for kids to do (or you can pretend to be a big kid!)
