Norwich is popular for its idyllic countryside and unique architecture.
It offers a lovely mix of quiet countryside villages and lively city life. The rural part of Norfolk is dotted with churches, pubs and cobbled streets to explore. Meanwhile the city of Norwich offers a vibrant atmosphere with award-winning restaurants and gastro pubs mainly found in Tombland, Prince of Wales Road and opposite Norwich railway station by the riverside.
The area is a leading UK tourist spot, famous for its many seaside resorts including Great Yarmouth. Another top attraction of Norwich is 'The Broads', an area with National Park status, is a collection or rivers and lakes.
Every May, the Norwich and Norfolk Festival is held celebrating the arts. Founded in 1772, what started as a classical music festival has now become a diverse mix of music, dance and theatre.
