Norwich Castle and Market

Book a hotel in Norwich and explore one of the country's most historically important cities, which, until the Industrial Revolution, was the country's second largest after London and one consistently of the most important centres of administration and culture in the medieval kingdom. Now often existing in the public conscious only as the hometown of fool and big-mouth radio DJ, Alan Partridge, this charming city remains mostly off the radar, an ideal spot for a quiet short break. Best Western has two hotels in Norwich. Come and stay in the city that nurtured Horatio Nelson and Stephen Fry and gave birth to Colman's Mustard and Delia Smith.

Norwich neighbourhoods

Norwich extends into the outer suburbs of Hellesdon and Bowthorpe. The areas are considered early examples of Anglo-Saxon settlements and Hellesdon has been found to contain ancient artefacts such as flint axes from distant time periods. From your Norwich hotel, explore the hilly city with its serpentine cobbled lanes that escaped the clutches of the ugly Industrial Revolution. The surrounding structures and buildings have a quaint and antiquated feel, as if the settlement is trapped in an earlier epoch. Head west and you will find Market Place and Maddermarket Theatre, originally built as a Roman Catholic Theatre. The city also has beautiful and extensive suburban areas on the western, northern and eastern sides, including Old Catton, Sprowston, Thorpe St Andrew and Costessey.

Shopping in Norwich

Norwich has the only city centre outside London with four national department stores as well as having its own award-winning independent, Jarrold - a shoppers paradise. There are two significant malls: Castle Mall and Chapelfield shopping centre, a recent addition to the thriving marketplace featuring multiple levels, a crèche, and a cinema. Other major retail outlets in the area include the likes of Debenhams and John Lewis. Visit the twisting medieval backstreets of Norwich lanes to visit the city's more interesting and independent specialist stores. The Teddy Bear Shop, in particular, has to be seen to be believed. The city is famous for producing the renowned brand of Colman's Mustard and a shop (and museum) within the ornate Royal Arcade is devoted solely to the brand. Staying at a hotel in Norwich will let you experience the city's unique welcoming charm.

Eating and drinking in Norwich

The restaurants in Norwich are very diverse. Alongside the usual haunts like Pizza Express, Zizzi's and Giraffe, Norwich features a range of unique restaurants serving a range of homemade dishes influenced by a variety of cultures. Many of the Thai places are worth investigating, such as the Sugar Hut and Lam Thai. Both are particularly quiet and decorated in an appropriate manner. For those looking for something slightly different, the famed Waffle House serves a variety of waffle-based meals, both sweet and savoury, and is situated away from the crowded city centre. The restaurants are a true testament to Norwich's ability to satisfy a wide spectrum of tastes. 
For an atmospheric evening drink, stroll down to Bishopgate's Adam and Eve pub from your Norwich hotel, a watering hole that has existed since 1249.

Culture and nightlife in Norwich

In close proximity to the University of East Anglia, the nightlife in Norwich is usually very vibrant with a mixture of students and locals. A lot of bars and clubs can be found around the city as well as the University's LCR nightclub.
The city features its historic castle, which sits high up on a hill overlooking the city, as well as two cathedrals, looming up into the sky. There are a wide range of theatres with programmes designed to fit everyone's tastes, the Norwich Playhouse, for example, is one of the top comedy venues in East Anglia. The Norwich Arts Centre is a live music venue, concert hall and theatre, also based at an old church whose spine-tingling atmosphere is bolstered by tombstones in the floor.
Book a Best Western hotel in Norwich and explore this remarkable and historical city, the perfect destination for a memorable UK city break.
