Often listed in the top places to live in the UK for outstanding quality of life, Norfolk is proud of its diverse nature thriving under its unique big skies.
Its city, Norwich, is rich in heritage and culture, overlooked by its Norman Castle with its museum and the spire of the Cathedral. Alongside the history, Norwich is a booming centre for commerce and business. Its retail centre, with its wonderful mix of high-end big name chains and growing range of independent shops, many in the Norwich Lanes, all built around Norwich’s famous indoor market, has made it a shopping capital.
Wherever you are in Norfolk, you’re never far from top quality locally-produced food, whether its at a farmer’s market or served in the restaurants, farm shop cafes or even road-side stalls.
Then there is the University of East Anglia with the Sainsbury’s Centre of Visual Arts where you can find work by Henry Moore, Pablo Picasso Henry Degas and more.

Norfolk’s market towns are thriving communities with weekly markets and independent shops.
So, whether it’s the big outdoors you love, culture, the arts or just a sense of community, Norfolk is your county!
