THE CITY OF NORWICH

Its historical significance as the second city of England over 800 years ago has left the city with a rich culture and heritage. With two cathedrals, a castle and countless churches and guildhalls the city centre itself is an excellent place for sightseeing.

However, this is not to say that Norwich is stuck in the past. The city boasts five theatres, four cinemas, countless music venues and an excellent mixture of restaurants and nightclubs. Add to this three shopping centers that make Norwich a key UK shopping destination, a championship football club and excellent water sports facilities it is clear that students at UEA have no shortage of options when it comes to recreation and relaxation.
