Norwich City Centre
17 Mile drive or direct train links from Attlebourough or Diss.
Norwich is considered the capital of East Anglia and has much to offer the visitor. Norwich city centre has streets that still carry a lot of their medieval charm, including some remains of the ancient city walls and a wealth of historic buildings. The Norman Cathedral is one of the finest in England, with its magnificent Cloisters and Cathedral Close.
The majestic Castle with its fine 12th century keep is prominently situated overlooking the city. All this contrasts with the modern, including the state-of-the-art Forum, Riverside development, and the city's two shopping malls. This is all linked together with some of the most attractive streets in the country including many cobbled streets, alleys and lanes. Norwich also has some fine open spaces, including the wonderful Riverside walk and Chapelfield gardens. Norwich Shops offer one of the top shopping destinations in the UK and has a mix of both high street names and individual boutiques, as well as the largest permanent open air market in England. The city has a wide selection of hotels and its main attractions lie in close proximity to one another and this makes Norwich an ideal city break, as it is easy to explore on foot.
Norwich is the perfect family destination with much to do with the family, from bowling to many art galleries, including the architectural genius of the Sainsburys Centre and a plethora of fine restaurants and pubs.
