Tourist information

Located in the heart of East Anglia, the historic, regional capital of Norfolk is indeed 'a fine city'; Norwich enjoys not one but two outstanding cathedrals, the largest daily open-air market in the country, two state-of-the-art shopping malls, and a huge variety of notable buildings demonstrating virtually every stage in the development of British architecture.

 

As the most complete medieval city in Britain, Norwich revels in its rich heritage. Dominated by a magnificent Norman cathedral, built in the Romanesque style, and boasting the largest cloisters in England, Norwich was once a leading ecclesiastical centre. The cathedral has the second tallest spire in the country, and is rightly famous for the amazing 1,200 stone bosses which adorn its roof. In the grounds of the Cathedral stands the Norwich School, once attended by Norfolk naval hero Admiral Lord Nelson. At the end of the Cathedral Close, a famous local landmark and old watergate, Pull's Ferry, stands on the banks of the beautiful River Wensum.

 

In addition to the Anglican Cathedral, Norwich is also one of the few UK cities to host a second cathedral; St John's is the second largest Catholic cathedral in the UK, and although constructed to be a fine example of Early English architecture, it was only constructed in 1910.

With the beautiful Guildhall, Norwich also boasts England's largest and most elaborate provincial medieval city hall, whilst nearby, its imposing art deco replacement, City Hall, holds the largest clock bell in the UK.

 

Norwich Castle occupies a commanding position above the old market and the shops of the Norwich Lanes, and since its construction by the Normans as a Royal Palace, the Castle has served both as a prison and as an eclectic museum. It is currently home to the definitive selection of paintings by the world famous Norwich School of Artists, and also to the world's largest collection of ceramic teapots.

 

Norwich has museums and galleries for all tastes; Strangers Hall looks at English domestic life, the Royal Norfolk Regimental Museum details the personal experiences of working soldiers, whilst the delightful Bridewell Museum highlights local civilian trades and industries. The recently restored Dragon Hall is a superb example of a 15th century merchants' house.

 

Norwich continues to be at the forefront of architectural innovation; constructed as the landmark Millennium project for the East of England, and in fine juxtaposition to the beautiful church of St Peter Mancroft, the Forum houses Norwich's new public library, the studios of the local BBC network, and a wonderful, luminous exhibition space.

 

It was once said that Norwich had a pub for every day of the week and a church for every week of the year. Within the historic city walls there are over 30 medieval churches, with many still regularly used for worship as parish churches. Norwich has also taken a unique approach to deconsecrated churches, utilising them variously as concert venues, arts centres, a hands-on science venue and the now-famous Norwich Puppet Theatre. Every October, St Andrew's and Blackfriars' Halls are the home to one of the largest and most successful beer festivals in the country. Throughout the year Norwich still has a thriving pub life, with something for all tastes, ranging from the multi-award-winning Fat Cat pub and brewery, and the popular Belgian Monk, to the regular entertainment venue at the Cider Shed and the historic delights of the Adam and Eve, the oldest alehouse in the city.

 

Norwich is a vibrant, modern cultural city with entrancing heritage, lively nightlife, stylish shopping options and a wide variety of restaurants and cafés.  The city also enjoys an almost unrivalled year-round programme of festivals, covering music, dance, theatre, food and drink.

 

Added to all this exciting entertainment, Norwich is one of the top five best places to shop in the UK. Whether you are looking for the most modern of shopping mall experiences, or would rather make the most of more traditional independent and speciality retailers, you will be delighted by the rambling medieval streets, timber framed buildings, the recently refurbished open-air market and the wide range of modern shops available in the city centre.

 

Norwich's unique mix of the medieval and modern, brings the visitor the very best in shops, museums, galleries, nightlife and the arts; giving the city an unrivalled cosmopolitan feel whilst also reflecting its rich East Anglian heritage.
