This website is your A-Z for Norwich. Here you can find places to stay, eat, drink and visit, as well as how to get here and what to do further out in Norfolk.

Norwich is a fabulous city break all year round, so whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter there is loads to see and do. It’s a great all-rounder destination for lovers of shopping, arts and culture, history, architecture, and food and drink. Norwich does GREAT local food. 

Norwich tourist information centre is now closed, however we’ve put together a quick-look guide to help you in the right direction.  

Looking for inspiration and things to do?

Take a look at our blog Norwich, City of Stories which is published every week with new information, be it the ‘top places for a Sunday lunch’ to ‘What’s On’ round ups each month. It’s a great place to keep up with Norwich news so you don’t miss out on anything.

We’ve also lots of recommendations for making the most of your time in Norwich and across Norfolk. See inspiring information for Couples, Friends, Families, Travelling Alone and Groups. 

We also have pages on Hidden Gems and Free and Low-Cost things to do. 

Need help getting around? 

See our Norwich Map if you need to get orientated with Norwich’s medieval street pattern, remembering that you can also pick up a map at various locations in Norwich as well as from our wonderful Norwich City Hosts (look out for them in blue tabards). 

It is very easy to get around Norwich once here because everywhere is walkable. We have a lot of independent businesses to shop, eat, drink and be entertained as well as all the familiar national chains.  Norwich also has wonderful city centre green spaces to enjoy and a trail of Norwich Book Benches (we are a UNESCO City of Literature). There are multiple festivals annually including Norfolk & Norwich Festival (international arts, May), City of Ale Festival (May/Jun), Norwich Wine Week (June), Norwich Summer Sessions (Jul, August), Heritage Open Days (September) and Norwich Beer Festival (Nov). 

Visiting Norwich for the first time? 

Taking a walking tour of Norwich is one of the best ways to see the city. Consider Paul Dickson Walking Tours, Cheryl Cade Tours (beer, gin and history) and The Shoebox Experiences (we particularly like the sound of the Tipsy Tavern Tour!). 

Museums include Norwich Castle, The Museum of Norwich, Strangers’ Hall, The South East Asia Collection at Country & Eastern (free) and the amazing world-class Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and Sculpture Park (free). 

Want to explore Norfolk? 

Staying in Norwich is also a wonderful opportunity to visit other places in Norfolk. So, consider staying a bit longer. The coast is close (30 mins to 1 hour drive) so look at places in North Norfolk like Cromer, Wells-next-the-Sea and the Holkham Estate. And The Broads is even closer where you can stay in hotels like The Norfolk Mead or book a few days out on a boat.

Day visits are also easy from Norwich. Look at Holkham Hall, Pensthorpe, Roarr!, BeWILDerwood, The Bug Parc, Wroxham Miniature Worlds, Cromer Pier, Thrigby Wildlife Park and the Thursford Collection.
