Why Move to Norwich?
The only English city set within a National Park, Norwich is a medieval city with a navigable network of peaceful rivers providing easy access to both sea and the Norfolk Broads.
You are never far from rolling hills, towering trees, or long stretches of award-winning beaches.
It was these qualities that historically made it an important hub for trade and manufacturing before transitioning into a service-based economy.
The city was voted one of the best places to live in the East of England by the Sunday Times in 2023.

Competitive wages are also advantageous in a city which has been ranked in the top ten UK destinations for shoppers with a treasure trove of shopping centres, department stores, independent stores and boutiques in the quaint Lanes and Timber Hill.
In fact, leisure time is rarely dull in Norwich which boasts a thriving cultural arts scene, a swathe of trendy restaurants, independent book shops and cosy cafes.

This rapidly expanding city certainly has a lot going for it. With some of the safest streets in Britain, great quality schools and beautiful green space on your doorstep, it comes as no surprise that many are now turning their attention East.
