Norwich takes some beating when it comes to shopping. Independent stores stand shoulder to shoulder with well-known high street retailers in a compact setting that is easily explored on foot. With two extensive shopping malls, large department stores, many independent boutiques and one of the largest outdoor markets in the UK, it is no wonder Norwich is considered one of the best places to visit in the country for a spot of retail therapy.
Read about some of Norwich’s most important dates in history, including when Norwich Castle, Norwich Cathedral and other historic and important buildings were built.

Location, location, location! You will be hard pressed to find such a super, stylish little cottage that's got a better view of the quay than this one. And there's a small parking space too.
