Norwich, where independent stores stand shoulder to shoulder with high street favourites.

Whatever you are looking for, be it shopping for the family, last minute gifts, the back to school rush or simply treating yourself to retail therapy you will find what you need in Norwich.

The presence of major high street retailers is seen in our regional flagship stores from: John Lewis, Marks and Spencer, Debenhams, House of Fraser and Primark located around Gentleman’s Walk, Westlegate and St Stephen’s Street. With two shopping malls – intu Chapelfield and Castle Quarter plus small retail parks at Riverside and Cathedral Park (both walkable from the main city centre).

And if that isn’t enough, there are dozens of independent shops for something different. Make sure you get around: the Norwich Lanes, the Cathedral Quarter and Magdalen Street. These areas are rich for vintage, collectables, art, fashion, lifestyle, boutiques and more. As are The Royal Arcade, Upper St Giles, Elm Hill and Timberhill.

Lastly, we have one incredible independent department store – Jarrold. It’s won awards, it has 5-floors and recently added a decadent Seafood and Champagne bar and restaurant.
