Day 1 - 24 Oct 2021
Content: We can’t recommend this place enough! Apart from being clean, comfortable, convenient and so beautifully furnished, our serviced apartment literally felt like home away from home.
Content: This street in the Norfolk city of Norwich is called Pottergate, measuring approximately 530 metres long. Could be a random street for some people visiting but we couldn’t resist from shooting some photos here! So naturally we had to share it with you as well.
Content: This restaurant seemed pretty cool from the outside and anyways we were looking for a good late lunch. So why not! Can’t recommend it enough! Would go again over and over.
Content: Elm Hill is the most famous street and the most complete medieval street in Norwich. A major fire destroyed almost everything in 1507 but the properties were rebuilt and now we can enjoy a beautiful cobbled street with merchant’s houses, thatching, individual homes, speciality shops and small cafes. Elm Hill is a photographers dream; whatever the season it retains its character and beauty. In summer, wander around browsing shops such as The Bear Shop, a quaint little place specialising in bears and collectables. In autumn, wonder at the rich colours of the falling leaves. In winter it is so Christmassy and charming, and in Spring, new life starts to form making Elm Hill bright and vibrant. We explored the craft shops, antiques and galleries, visited tea shops, coffee houses and delis. It was so fun 🤩
Content: We spent the rest of the evening pub hopping! It’s our best thing to do in the UK 🇬🇧 We love the vibe there way too much. Don’t forget saving this place for a drink or two. You just can’t miss it.
Day 2 - 25 Oct 2021
Content: We sat here for breakfast! 100% worth it 👌 We had 2 English breakfasts and they were extremely tasty but also super filling which we really needed for a full day of exploring in our second day but also last day in Norwich.
Content: As we learned, this is the most complete Norman Cathedral in England and one of the finest examples of Romanesque architecture in Europe. Norwich Cathedral is also one of England’s finest Cathedrals. After you have unearthed over 900 years of history and explored the awe-inspiring Cathedral building, discover the largest Cathedral Close and monastic Cloisters in the land, view fascinating exhibitions, enjoy a light lunch or coffee and cake in the Refectory café and experience the tranquillity of the Herb and Japanese Gardens.
Content: What a perfect afternoon ❤️ We walked up to this spot to appreciate the view of the fine city of Norwich, from above and it was great! This lovely park high above the city has amazing views looking down on the cathedral, castle and city centre. You could even imagine what it looked like in 1549 when Robert Kett camped his troops up here prior to attacking Norwich. It didn’t end well … unlike our visit to Norwich 😬
Content: We were looking for something chill yet interesting to do and somehow this place ticked all the boxes ✅ It’s located on the University of East Anglia campus and we learned that it was built by architect Norman Foster in 1973 to house the Robert and Lisa Sainsbury Collection. It was Foster’s first public building and is an attraction in itself, along with the works of Picasso, Degas, Henry Moore and Francis Bacon. The Centre also hosts regular exhibitions. After visiting, we took a walk around the lake and enjoyed the sculpture trail. It was so fun ❤️
Content: Since we went in to our apartment to change for the evening, we wanted something close by and walking distance, hence why we chose this place which is literally opposite to where we were staying 💙 Also, can’t forget to mention … the food was really good and the environment was great! It was a good evening.
Content: We loved the ale and the vibrant atmosphere from this place! We can really understand why it was voted ‘pub of the year’ for so many times. They only have pork pies and rolls in the food department but they apparently run a BBQ every Sunday during the summer! That would be interesting 🤔
