City Breaks In Norwich, UK
Shop in a city of offbeat charm & quirky vibrancy.
Stay in Georgian boutique splendour in the heart of Norwich; a hop, skip and a jump from high street retailers to award-winning independent stores.
Norwich's geographical separation from other English cities has infused it with a rich character all of its own; an invigorating mix of the past and present.
The Assembly House is one of Norwich's best known buildings and combines city break B&B accommodation with a fantastic location. A few minutes' walk will bring you right amongst Norwich's excellent shops, attractions and evening entertainment. In fact, it's located next door to the Norwich Theatre Royal, a 1,300 seat art-deco theatre with an exciting and varied events programme.
Norwich's original shopping mall, the Royal Arcade, is an Art Nouveau walkway; take a stroll through its wonderful architechture and explore stylish shops and eateries.
The Norwich Lanes is a mix of streets and winding paths awarded in 2014 the coveted title 'Great British High Street of the Year' for its abundance of artisan businesses and community spirit atmosphere. When you've finished browsing its independent boutiques and galleries, stop off for some lunch at Grosvenor Fish Bar, where you can enjoy fish and chips in their amazing renovated undercroft to the tunes of 1950's swing music!
Meanwhile Norwich Cathedral Quarter spills with vintage emporiums, all nestled in a picturesque area bursting with history and heritage. Don't neglect to visit the ever popular Bear Shop on Elm Hill before a spot of lunch at The Briton's Arms- one of only five remaining thatched buildings in the city. They also have a lovely courtyard garden for those sunny days!
