The local area guide to living in Norwich

As the most medieval city in the country, Norwich has no shortage of stunning architecture to be admired. Dating back more than 1000 years, the buildings that make up the scenic town centre give a beautiful representation of old England.

Beyond the centre, the leafy suburbs provide quieter, green spaces that are popular with families. Suburbs such as Thorpe St Andrew, Hellesdon and Costessey surround the busy city as a more serene haven.

In the centre itself, there’s a busy creative scene that’s magnified by the student population. Theatres, art galleries and museums abound throughout the area, which make it a popular place for artists and connoisseurs.

It’s also a city popular with more corporate industries, such as financial services – it’s home to Aviva (previously known as Norwich Union) – and science sectors, thanks to the Norwich Research Park.

Information about the local residents

Norwich has a fairly young population, largely thanks to it being a student city. Around 26% of the 230,000 strong population is aged between 16 and 29 years old. Norwich is not particularly diverse ethnically compared to the national average, at roughly 85% White British compared to the average of 82% White British nationally. Norwich is also the least religious city in the England, with over 40% not having any religion, a staggering 15% larger than the rest of the country.

It’s also a prosperous area, with 51% of the population owning their own homes, and a higher-than-average number of residents working in health and education. Approximately half the working-age population is educated to A level or above, and around one-third work in banking, finance and insurance.

Nearby schools

There are more than 450 childcare providers for pre-school-aged children in Norwich, from playgroups and nurseries to independent schools.

Primary school children have the option of the Norwich Steiner School, which takes pupils aged between 6 and 10 years old. It is a privately run school that follows the Rudolph Steiner curriculum, which places an emphasis on art and nature.

There are also several excellent independent and state primary schools. The former includes the Norwich School and Norwich School for Girls, while the latter includes Framingham Earl High School and the day and boarding school Wymondham College.

For further education, students have the choice of City College Norwich, which is one of the UK’s biggest colleges, and the specialist Norwich School of Art & Design. The city also houses the University of East Anglia campus – a university that is consistently ranked in the country’s top 20 and particularly well known for its Creative Writing course.

Getting around

Norwich’s city centre is pedestrianised – and exploring the city on foot means that you get to take in the stunning medieval architecture. To reach the centre there are a number of Park & Ride facilities – more than any other UK city.

The city’s central location places it a short train ride away from London. There’s a well-connected train station in the city centre, as well as a number of intercity coaches. There are buses that run around the city and surrounding areas, and an extensive cycle network which includes a designated bike park.

Local shops

Norwich Lanes is the most popular area for shopping and dining. Cobbled alleyways and open courtyards are lined with boutique shops and restaurants. There’s also the Cathedral Quarter close by, which is full of further cafes, shops and green spaces. At night, the busiest areas are Tombland and Prince of Wales Road, packed with pubs and clubs.

Sports fans can visit the home of Norwich City Football Club, while history buffs can take in the City Hall clock tower.
