During a fleeting visit to Norfolk, we took a quick pitstop in Norwich to have a look around.  After hearing a lot of glowing feedback about the city, I was rather looking forward to having a look around first-hand.


Norwich is pretty city and is characterised by its beautiful Tudor buildings.  Apparently it is the UK’s best preserved Medieval city, so history and architecture lovers will be in their element.  It is also one of the UK’s best voted student cities, in addition to being the only one in the UK within a National Park (in this case the Norfolk Broads).

(Above) The Augustine Steward’s House is one of the city’s famous buildings to look out for.  The Tudor merchant house dates back to the 1500’s and is one of the most photographed.

(Above) I really love this view – with the brightly coloured houses it looks quite Scandinavian.

We took a look around the Norman Cathedral, which is one of the city’s main attractions, featuring one of the highest spires in the the UK.  It really is a gorgeous and expansive place to walk around, so it is best to take your time, to take in all its beauty.


From what I saw during my brief visit, Norwich is a gorgeous city and I would love to explore it in more depth next time.
