About Norwich

This thriving town is known as the home of Delia Smith, of Colman’s mustard and Alan Partridge – but don’t let that last one put you off.

Norwich has a fashionable vibe and a reputation for fine architecture, culture (in 2012 it was named England’s first UNESCO City of Literature) and great opportunity.

The historic and much-loved open-air market is one of the biggest in Europe and is always thronged with residents and visitors. There’s also two shopping malls, multiple department stores and the vintage shopping vibe of the Norwich Lanes. Once shopped out visitors head for the varied cafes and restaurants that line the streets serving up anything from street food to high end cuisine. 

The month of May sees Norwich come alive, as the city streets, performance venues, parks and public spaces host the Norfolk and Norwich Festival. The world-class arts festival takes in music, theatre, art, literature, dance and more and brings together the community for 17 fun-packed family-friendly days.

But it’s not just the bustling heart of Norwich that makes for a great place to call home. There are plenty of pretty villages set just a few miles out of the town itself such as Bawburgh with its French Riviera vibe, Bracon Ash and the riverside Brundall. Plus you’re within easy reach of the North Norfolk’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the region’s Blue Flag beaches and miles of unspoiled countryside.
