Capital of Norfolk, of the expansive views and relaxed attitude, Norwich is a beautiful, easy-going city with plenty of notable architecture arranged around a charming warren of alleyways. And the best places to stay in Norwich will be well located to make the most of these.
Most of the grand buildings were built during the town’s wool boom, but there’s also an impressively well preserved Norman castle and an awe-inspiring Anglican cathedral, with a spire second only in height to Salisbury.
Norwich’s other sights include the Bridewell Museum - a 14th Century women’s prison, Blickling Hall - the old Bishop’s Palace, and an impressive Market Square surrounded by lovely little streets of half timbered houses, many now home to antique shops. And of course you’re very close to the Norfolk Broads.
Norwich has a bit of a reputation for being sleepy, but there’s a large student population, and some fantastic markets, so this is really a pretty lively place if you want it to be!
