The City of Norwich and Region

Map of UKNorwich is the regional centre of East Anglia, and has all the wealth and exuberance of a major city with a vibrant cosmopolitan atmosphere. It is just one and a half miles from the UEA campus and is also home to a diverse student population from other educational institutions. This gives Norwich a young outlook and helps keeps the cost of living affordable.

Norwich has been voted one of Britain's top cities for quality of life and prosperity and there is a variety of entertainment on offer. The city is full of nightclubs, cinemas and restaurants and houses over 300 pubs and bars. The Norwich Arts Centre offers jazz, drama, rock and world music and the city's Theatre Royal is one of Britain's top regional venues, showing many London productions of opera, ballet and plays.

Norwich is overlooked by the towering cathedral and Normal Castle, its cobbled streets open out on to riverside walks, quiet gardens, museums and art galleries. Many ancient buildings now serve as cinemas, tea rooms and concert halls. Everywhere you will see medieval and modern buildings coexisting in one of England's most unspoiled cities.
