Loganair flies to Norwich from Manchester and Edinburgh.
Norwich has a delightful jumble of medieval streets, lanes and alleys lined with a superb collection of buildings, churches, shops and restaurants. Most notably the cobbled Elm Hill where you will find attractive half-timbered Tudor houses, delightful antique shops and cosy coffee houses and tea rooms. Exploring Norwich is easy on foot due to the city’s compact scale. Unique and interesting places to visit include Plantation Garden, a restored Victorian secret garden situated in the heart of Norwich and The Bishop’s Garden, open for only a few days a year at Norwich Cathedral.
Norwich’s ancient buildings and city wall remains make it the most complete medieval city in Britain. Norwich has over 30 medieval churches within the city walls alone, many still function as parish churches, but others have been imaginatively converted to other uses. ‘Norwich 12’ is the UK’s finest collection of individually outstanding heritage buildings from the Norman, medieval, Georgian, Victorian and modern eras. Visitors can explore these 12 iconic landmarks through guided tours, visitor attractions, exhibitions and music performances.
Norwich is justifiably regarded as the arts capital of East Anglia, boasting an arts scene comparable with much larger cities. Home to the famous Norwich School of Painters, Norwich is proud of its visual arts tradition and there are extensive opportunities to see both permanent and visiting exhibitions of outstanding work.
From Norwich, you can reach a magical place where land and water, people and nature meet; the Norfolk Broads, a uniquely beautiful environment that offers visitors an experience unlike any other. The Broads is Britain’s largest protected wetland with a beautiful, wild expanse of 200km of rivers, shallow lakes, woodland, fens and grazing marshes. It is also home to some of the rarest plants and wildlife in the whole of the UK. In the Broads you can be as relaxed or as energetic as you like: river trips, sailing, angling, cycling and water sports are all easily found.
