The Norwich 12
These 12 buildings are listed as the most iconic in Norwich, with internationally important medieval, Georgian, Victorian and Norman developments culminating into one of the UK’s finest showcases of historic architecture. Some of the buildings include Norwich Castle, Dragon Hall, and the St. John Baptist Cathedral.
The Norfolk Broads
Described by many as “Britain’s magical waterland”, the Norfolk Broads are a must for any visitor to Norwich. These uniquely beautiful broads and rivers connect over 200km of lock-free and navigable waterways, where visitors can stop by tranquil villages, explore market towns, or kick-back at riverside pubs and restaurants.
Banham Zoo is a fantastic family day out with over 2,000 animals including tigers, snow leopards, monkeys, meerkats and more! Spread over 50 acres of parks and gardens, the zoo also offer educational presentations, animal shows and interactive experiences.
Blakeney National Nature Reserve
Walk the lovely paths through the Blakeney National Nature Reserve and enjoy stunning views on untouched nature. The area is home to a variety of bird colonies and unusual plants as well as both grey and common seals.
As Norwich is located at the Mid-Norfolk Railway and therefore provides good connections to other railways as well, it is highly recommended to explore the region and its lovely towns by train. If you are lucky, you will be able to catch a glimpse of a steam locomotive which is running during certain times of the year.
