Norwich England

The affluent and easy-going city of Norwich (norr-ich) is a rich tapestry of meandering alleys liberally sprinkled with architectural jewels – spoils of the city's medieval wool boom. A magnificent cathedral and impressive Norman castle bookend the city centre; in-between, crooked half-timbered buildings line quiet lanes. Thriving markets and a large student population enhance the city’s relaxed vibe. Add quick access to the Broads and Norfolk’s beaches, and you have an excellent base from which to explore.
