Norwich is a beautiful town in Norfolk. If you are looking for a new trip or holiday destination, then Norwich should be your first port of call as there’s plenty to see and do here. Below I’ve listed some of the best things to see and do when you’re staying in Norwich.
Having recently added the tremendous City Heights and Nursery Rest to our portfolio of holiday homes, there’s never been a better time to explore this charming town. Here are 3 key reasons why you should consider this vibrant town as your next holiday destination.
Such secluded surroundings were very welcome when I was making the decision to spend time in this fantastic town. Norwich is known for its ancient churches and for being home to one of the largest pre-Christian population centres in Europe.
Norwich Cathedral is set on peaceful grounds, full of grassy squares and handsome houses, not to mention a viewing station for the peregrine falcons that nest up in the cathedral’s spire. It is a beautiful place and a lovely visit if you are in the area.
On a recent visit to Norwich, I loved the market heart – a huge outdoor market area packed with stalls selling a huge variety of goods. There was so much great food here for me to try: pitta thin flatbreads with creamy tomato Sauce (delicious); fresh fish and chips; Japanese style miso soup with pickled vegetables; The bowls were so delicious I didn’t want to share them with friends.
Norwich Market is a perfect destination for those planning a trip to Norwich, or those who have already visited, to re-visit their favourite places and fasten plans for future visits.
The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts is one of the best galleries in the UK – the place inside is like entering a dream. Beautiful art, very helpful staff, amazing exhibition space. If you want to explore the visual arts but don’t know where to start – it’s a great place to start your journey. Everyone I’ve worked with has been amazed by the ease of access and how great the exhibits are. I’d highly recommend it.
