Norwich: Home to one of the country's largest outdoor markets

When visitors come to Norwich and look around they will see a city which is steeped in history, proudly showing off its medieval roots.

It has over 1,500 historical buildings, ensuring that its past sits alongside modern sophistication, making it the ideal destination for families or couples.

Up until the start of the industrial revolution, Norwich was the second city in England and has an excellent legacy of this prosperous and culturally active time.

As the county town of Norfolk, Norwich is based within just 20 miles of the Great Yarmouth coastline, which will cater for those who want to experience the seaside, while London is under two hours away on the train for commuting or a city break at the weekend.

Properties for sale in Norwich are also close to other major towns such as Lowestoft, Ipswich and King's Lynn, while Cambridge is around 90 minutes away via the A11.

Norwich lays claim to being a top ten UK shopping destination, with shops based on St Stephen's and other pedestrianised thoroughfares. Norwich Market is one of the UK's largest outdoor six-day-a-week markets in the UK having started around 800 years ago.

It is well-known for its local produce like cheese, fish and meat, while Norfolk artefacts and other gifts can also be purchased.

In terms of entertainment, families living in the city will never find themselves short of something to do, with cafe bars, cinemas, theatres and restaurants adding to the many bars, pubs and clubs. West End productions often take residence at the Theatre Royal Norwich, while some of the country's funniest comedians appear at the Norwich Playhouse.

Exhibitions, concerts and gigs are commonplace throughout the city during the year, with venues like St Andrew's Hall being popular among visitors.
Norwich City is the region's major sporting side and after being promoted two years in a row, they managed to consolidate their place in the Premier League for a second season, with chef Delia Smith being the proud owner.ADNFCR-1222-ID-801395546-ADNFCR
