Norwich has a considerable variation of properties, with plenty to choose from for first-time buyers.

Perhaps the University of East Anglia was what brought you to Norwich, and you fell in love with the city, many people do.
Maybe you’re looking at other cities because you can’t afford to live in London or you’re relocating here due to work, whatever the reason you’re going to love it!

Things to do in Norwich

Norwich also has a castle on a hill, William the Conqueror put it there in 1066 because he wanted to fortify Norwich.
