Here are this week's picks of the best things to see and do - from amazing puppetry and beautiful ballet right through to enjoying a glass of bubbly with your cake, there's something for everyone!
The transition from winter into spring is a beautiful time, particularly in Norfolk. There’s something rather breath-taking about the way the landscape looks in the chillier months – and none more so than the wonderful gardens at Raveningham, where Snowdrop Season will be celebrated throughout February.
Make the most of Half Term, Valentine's Day or just book a spontaneous trip away; Norwich has some lovely hotels, B&Bs and self-catering properties to relax and unwind in. Once you're here, head out for some food and make sure you make the most of Norwich's fantastic shopping offer.
What could be better after a hectic couple of months that a trip to a spa with someone you absolutely love – and we don’t just mean a partner, we also mean partner- in- crime! The one person whom you can completely depend upon, the best friend you cannot do without...
Here’s our roundup of six fab things to do this coming week – from Miss Marple with a twist to vintage finds!
It may feel like Christmas is only just behind us, but there’s another excuse to down tools for a week (if you have kids or are a teacher, that is…): half term!
If you have already read our 2017: The Year of the Literary Hero post last week, you'll know that 2017 is...well, the year of the literary hero! So to celebrate this we're going to bring to you, in 2017, some of our favourite and most notable Norwich 'literary heroes'. At this point we want to highlight that you don't have to be a literary wizard to enjoy our stories, you just need to enjoy a good yarn.
Love is in the air at the Cathedral of St John the Baptist! To celebrate the launch of their brand new weddings offer, the Cathedral is offering one lucky couple the chance to win a twilight tower tour for two this Valentine’s day – Tuesday 14th February!
Established in 1249 as a hospital for the sick and poor clergy of Norwich (originally known as St Giles Hospital), the church of St Helen and the Great Hospital has seen its fair share of history! Situated in one of the most historic areas of Norwich, the Great Hospital boasts the smallest cloisters in England whilst England’s largest monastic cloisters, at Norwich Cathedral, sit just a stone’s throw away!
2017 is the year of the Literary Hero, so says VisitEngland – and we wholeheartedly agree!
Fill the week ahead full of fun things to do – our highlights have it all planned out, leaving you to feel all smug and spontaneous!
Don’t lament winter, make the most of the chillier weather in the city’s snug pubs. Norwich may no longer have a pub for every day of the year, but we still have plenty to offer! Here’s our favourite pubs and bars to enjoy a warming drink in and feel just like a local!
…strolling all the way to London? Yes, hundreds of years ago it actually happened!
After a few days (well, let's be honest – more like weeks) of Christmas indulgence, a spot of post-Christmas exercise wouldn't go amiss. Nothing too strenuous, mind – walking will do just fine for now, so here are our top walks to enjoy during Twixmas (that week right after Christmas) or in the New Year.
It may be Christmas weekend, but there’s still plenty to do - for all tastes and ages - in the lead up to the big day on Sunday!
