Introducing Norwich

Once described as having a pub for every day of the year and a church for every Sunday, vibrant Norwich still has both in abundance and plenty more besides. These days the fabulous medieval wool churches that crop up on almost every street corner house everything from cybercafés to a puppet theatre in a heart-warming demonstration of how preservation and innovation can go hand in hand. Choice modern developments and the city’s artsy student population further ensure that its steep zigzagging warren of historic streets brim with activity. The city is home to a remarkable Norman keep and a marvellous cathedral, and while the city’s economic clout has waned considerably since its medieval heyday, Norfolk’s capital is still one of the region’s most appealing cities after Cambridge.
