Hire a car in Norwich

For a long time, Norwich was considered England's second city.

East Anglia’s traditional capital was one of the largest Norman strongholds and one of the wealthiest towns by 1700. Its decline in size has not affected its beauty or charm.

As England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, it has an unbeatable literary heritage and annual festival, in which world-renowned authors descend upon the city. With its close location to England’s east coast beaches, wetland surroundings and a population of only 140,000 people, Norwich is an easy city to enjoy.

The Broads

Norwich rests within the Broads National Park, a stunning countryside laced with a network of over 125 miles of navigable rivers and lakes – that’s more waterways than Amsterdam.

Although the waterways may look natural, they are in fact man-made. During the 12th century, peat digging – extracting the decayed plant material from the soil – was used as a fuel source. This digging formed massive holes, which eventually filled with water and flooded.

Home to more than a quarter of Britain’s rarest wildlife, including Kingfishers, otters and Swallowtail butterflies, the Broadland is perfect for bird watching and breathing in the fresh air.

Boat tours will transport you from one small village to the next, a favourite holiday activity since the 1930s. You can also enjoy the region by taking advantage of its footpath and cycling trails.

Medieval history

Norman riches

When the Normans conquered the area of East Anglia, they relocated the city and built 4km of defensive walls around it. The era was a prosperous one, which you can still see reflected through the remaining architectural achievements.

Norwich Castle
Designed as a royal palace, Norwich Castle was constructed in 1094 on an artificial mound, overlooking the newly relocated Norman city. A symbol of political and military control, it never actually served its original purpose, though it was used as a fort and jail. Today, it is a museum and art gallery.

Norwich Cathedral
Built in 1096, this cathedral is one of the best preserved examples of a Norman church anywhere in England. The Romanesque style cathedral makes a statement, with the second tallest spire and largest monastic cloisters in England. The area surrounding the cathedral, known as The Close, is filled with historic buildings and the Cathedral Quarter and is also worth exploring.
