Visiting Norwich – A City Guide
The city of Norwich blends history and culture with nightlife and a range of shopping. Visitors like to explore its cathedral and castle, and use the city as a base to discover the Norfolk Broads to the north and beautiful coastline to the east.

Norwich: city layout
Norwich has a compact centre and most places can be reached on foot. The city’s west is dominated by Norwich Castle. The narrow Bedford Street and London Street, home to bustling pubs, form the oldest part of town. The imposing Norwich Cathedral is at the city’s eastern edge. Norwich city centre, close to the art deco City Hall, includes high-street shopping along Haymarket.

The concierge recommends…

  • Exploring Norwich Castle. This medieval fort hosts a local history museum and an art gallery. Climbing to the turrets gives visitors panoramic views of the city.
  • Discovering the ornate cathedral, an important part of Norwich heritage.
  • Taking a trip to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, a significant collection of modern art including works by Francis Bacon and Picasso.

Hotels in Norwich
Weekend visitors to Norwich enjoy the busy Riverside district. Riverside is a short stroll from the train station and home to bustling bars, restaurants and cinemas. The area is close to the city’s football team ground. The historic streets close to the Castle and are also within walking distance.

Those looking to explore the Norfolk county might like to stay just outside the city centre. The residential north of the city is well situated for Norwich International Airport and day trips to the Norfolk Broads countryside. The quieter south side is perfect for exploring Great Yarmouth and the East Norfolk coastline.

Eating Out in Norwich
You can try pork sausages and mash and traditional Sunday lunches, along with a pint of ale, at pubs along Unthank Road. For a gastronomic dining experience, try restaurants along Tombland. The city’s historic market is in the centre, near City Hall. Here you can buy fresh food including local seafood and pulled pork sandwiches.

The chef recommends...

  • Trying a typical Sunday lunch in a traditional pub. Opt for roast turkey with potatoes and gravy, served with a pint of local ale.
  • Tasting locally caught shellfish such as cockles and whelks at the city market stalls.

Shopping in Norwich
For upmarket shopping, head to the Royal Arcade, which houses independent boutiques, including Langleys, a traditional English toy shop. Timberhill is also lined with independent shops selling gifts, home accessories and artisanal jewelry. You’ll find big-name brand shops at the Castle Mall, Chapelfield and Haymarket.

  • Colman’s, known throughout the United Kingdom, has been making mustard in the Norwich area for 200 years. The brand has a shop in the Royal Arcade.
  • Bottled local beers and ales can be drunk in pubs or bought from shops throughout the city.

Friendly helpful staff
By Stephan 65
We used the hotel to tour Norfolk so it was well centred We were on holiday so we would of appreciated a later breakfast which finished at 9.30 mid week, although we were allowed to take a tray to [More] the room for our daughter Car parking was difficult due to the sports centre next door being very busy. Bed was too soft for our liking giving my wife a back ache, but overall I would recommend this hotel [Less]
Excellent staff, rooms in need of updating
By Dwoob
Initial impression of the hotel is not brilliant as it is flanked by two leisure centre buildings in need of repair/decoration. Because of the leisure centre parking is limited near the hotel, the [More] nearby ASDA car park is needed. On entry the hotel lobby and reception area are bright and clean and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. After this initial impression the rooms are a bit of a let down. They are not dirty or things do not work it's just that they are worn and in need of refurb (we had a stain on the carpet, TV remote batteries held in with sticky tape). On the plus side the bed/pillows were very comfortable but I do not like windows that do not open so that fresh air is not available. Breakfast was up to HIE standard being tasty and fresh but with limited choice. [Less]
Friendly service, shame about the bed
By Fili59
Friendly and helpful staff Clean and tidy hotel Nice breakfast with a good choice of food. Unfortunately the bed was too soft and bouncy. It reflected every move the occupents of the bed made. The [More] soft pillow was hard and flat , ( but the firm pillow was just that ) Overall good value for money and I would be happy to stay there again. [Less]
Very nice place to stay
By Splodge82
Holiday Inn Norwich City is a great location to stay in. Perfect for exploring the city and the surrounding coastal towns. The hotel is modern and luxurious with very friendly staff. The rooms are [More] excellent. [Less]
Comfortable bed and great service
By sarwhit
We stayed at this hotel as there was not much else available in Norwich at the time. It is very clean and comfortable, but is in a slightly unattractive area - the area is primarily for football [More] visitors, I guess. The beds and pillows are fantastic. The toiletries provided are extremely basic - no shampoo or conditioner, for instance, just a general purpose shower gel in a tube. The ambiance is very utilitarian - it is probably ideal for business users. The staff were very well trained and helpful. [Less]

HI Norwich

Greatly Improved
By Mike-M, Darlington
I have stayed at this hotel very occasionally since 1998. However, since becoming the Holiday Inn, I can say for certain that standards have greatly improved all round over the past 12 - 18 [More] months. Well done! [Less]
