There was a time when it looked like sweet-shop favourites might disappear, as corner shops with sets of scales and shelves lined with clear jars of colourful sticky sweet treats became a thing of the past. A world without cherry lips, flying saucers, floral gums, violet creams, humbugs, toffees and chocolate limes by the quarter seemed feasible, but thanks to the wider trend for all things retro, there has been a resurgence of sweet emporiums and a renewed determination to keep those that never went away open on our high streets.
Norwich is a beautiful city, steeped in history, dating back over 2,000 years. The central streets still follow their medieval course outlined by what remains of the ancient city walls. Norwich is dominated by its magnificent Cathedral and Medieval Castle. The city’s newest public building, The Forum, is also an impressive landmark, situated in the heart of the city centre, offering information and entertainment.
Norfolk has a spectacular coastline, with long sandy beaches, high cliffs, sand dunes, flint pebble banks and salt marshes. It is also well known for the Norfolk Broads, an extensive waterway that can be fully explored by boat. There are many towns and villages within Norfolk, all with their own individual characters. The port of King's Lynn has a long trading history, and today it still has large trade links with the rest of Europe.
