Things to do in the beautiful, historic city of Norwich

Norwich is the only city to be situated in a National Park. It was once the capital of England, following a successful period of affluence with the thriving wool trade. With over 1000 years of recorded history, a wonderful collection of heritage landmarks and striking 21st century architecture, Norwich has something to offer everyone. Bustling during the day with shops and cafes, there is also plenty of culture and sights to entertain in the evening too and it’s well worth a visit during your Norfolk Broads holidays.

Head up the River Yare, and onto the section they call the Wensum. You can moor up at Norwich Yacht Station which will cost £5 for the day or £12 overnight.
