Advantages: Shops, sight seeing, sports facilities.
Disadvantages: poor roads to get there ... no motorways in norfolk!
You will be forgiven for imagining that because norwich is in norfolk that they have made the roads for tractors and the accessories shops all sell flat caps!
Actually maybe a few miles away you'd be right, but Norwich combines the historical background with very modern and exciting facilities.
The newest feature in Norwich is the multiscreen UCI cinema which always has something you would want to see, and for all those NUS card holders, they give discounts :o)Another newer feature is Castle Mall. This was very cleverly designed because whichever floor you are on, you can always walk onto the street. This is done by taking advantage of Norwich's varied gradients. The architecture is not the best thing about the mall though ... there are sooooo many good shops!!!
Is shopping not your thing? Well if you like to sight see, you would be in the right place!
Norwich Castle is one of the main attractions and I hear its very interesting and there is lots to see - although I have never been. I have been to the Cathedral however, and I was taken aback by the amazing decorative standard here! I really reccomend a visit.
If you are staying in Norfolk for a few days, then why not take advantage of all the different tourist town near norwich ... each one between 30 minutes to an hours distance away.
Maybe you are thinking about studying in norwich ... well the UEA is near the centre and so near all the good night clubs. And there are many of those. One of the ebst being Time.
Are you athletic? Well there's a dry ski slope and a sports village too so take your pick.
So if you thought there'd be nothing to do ... then you were wrong!!!
