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.

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.

Ticks the box, for sure.
By MammaT
Staff absolutely made this weeks stay work well. Sleep-breakfast-work-run-eat-homework repeat was my week and the Norwich Holiday Express was the perfect place to eat and sleep. I’m sure in non [More] covid tines the restaurant and bar would be buzzing but the order and take back to your room meals worked well as a covid compliant system. Smiley, friendly, helpful staff made it a pleasure. Even filling a glass with ice as soon as I appeared in the entrance following my daily run without having to ask. The little touches are gold dust.

Norwich - flying visit
By Stevo
Stayed here several times, and as usual the experience was excellent. This hotel has remained open during the pandemic and for key workers like ourselves, who work away from home during the week, it [More] really makes a difference to receive such fantastic service. Other hotels use single use meal cartons and a breakfast bag (not very good) whereas here you get freshly cooked food, served to your room on plates. Evening meal menu was a little restricted (hotels words, not mine) but there is still plenty of choice. There is also a comprehensive breakfast menu. Bedrooms and bathrooms are spotless and the beds are really comfortable. Great night’s sleep. [Less]
Excellent service in difficult conditions.
By David
As a key worker I have stayed at several hotels over the last year. While most have tried to make things as safe and comfortable as possible during this pandemic, Holiday Inn Norwich was undoubtably [More] the best of the bunch. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The hotel was spotlessly clean and with hand sanitising stations in strategic places I felt very safe. The most pleasing aspect was the choice of food on the room service menu and breakfast. After expecting a very limited menu and the prospect of yet another carry-out the choices and variety of dishes were a welcome surprise. Full marks to the management and staff for their magnificent efforts. Thank you. [Less]
