All About the Golden Triangle in Norwich


One of the most sought after areas in Norwich is the prestigious Golden Triangle.

Search for “houses for sale Golden Triangle”, and you’ll be served an array of properties, but they soon get snapped up because these exclusive properties are in demand!
It’s also known as the magic triangle, the Norwich triangle of gold, and “The Golden City’, Norwich. People who live here like to fondly call it a golden village within a city and that’s because it has all the characteristics of a village. Just like London is allowed to have its Notting Hill village, here in Norwich we have The Golden Triangle village, which has actually been compared to Notting Hill by many of the major tabloids.

Village life in the Golden Triangle is cool, energised and fashionable with well-heeled residents sipping coffee along the Unthank Road. We have the Unthanks to “thank” for this triangle of gold because if it wasn’t for them moving to Norwich in the 17th century, becoming prosperous and buying up the land in 1793, it could be a completely different story. Unthank road is the centre of the Golden Triangle, and it’s along here that the main hustle and bustle occurs, with its eateries and shops attracting not just the locals but people from afar. The triangle then moves out to Newmarket road, Lime Tree Road and Christchurch Road and then the other way towards Mile End Road and Earlham Road. There was a past argument that Dereham road was to be added to the Golden Triangle, but it never happened, but now purely for Dereham Road, there is a Silver Triangle.

Some of the reasons why The Golden Triangle, Norwich is such a hit:
