Best areas to live in Norwich

Norwich has so many great areas to move to, regardless of your budget and requirements. 

Old Catton

Two miles north-east of Norwich city centre sits the suburban village of Old Catton, a conservation area made up of quiet streets, listed buildings, and protected parkland and trees. Popular among families who are drawn to the village’s proximity to Norwich, as well as its amenities and its primary schools and nurseries, houses in Old Catton cost on average £242,458.

Costessey

Located just four miles west of Norwich, house prices in the small civil parish of Costessey average £243,802. With a total of five schools in Costessey, including infant schools and a secondary school, as well as four pubs, a medical centre and some shops, the area is popular with families. Its proximity to Norwich also means it appeals to commuters.

Hellesdon

Hellesdon is a large village and suburb that is home to Norwich International Airport and a library, pubs, schools, independent shops and supermarkets. Property prices in Hellesdon average at around £264,549. Historical buildings, among them the 15th century Grade II listed church of St Mary, make Hellesdon a picturesque and cultural place to live. Located only four miles north-west of central Norwich, it is popular among those commuting to Norwich for work or to study.

Sprowston

Sprowston is a suburban town just three miles north-east of central Norwich, where average house prices come in at around £237,521, with terraced houses selling for as little as £206,700, making it one of the most affordable suburbs of Norwich to call home. A quiet area with a retail park for the practical stuff and an impressive manor hotel and country club for leisure pursuits, Sprowston offers spacious, low-cost properties with period features, all within close proximity to the city.

Cringleford

With average property prices of £402,177, Cringleford is one of the most expensive villages on Norwich’s outskirts. Only four miles south-west of Norwich city centre, Cringleford is popular among commuters, but this tiny parish, with only 3,000 residents, has far more to offer than just proximity to the county’s main city. Tree-lined streets, green spaces, St. Peter’s Church and the historic Cringleford Water Mill make Cringleford a quiet and quaint place to live, while nearby pubs, shops and leisure facilities keep residents entertained all year round.

Things to do in Norwich

From pretty parks to quaint buildings and cultural opportunities, there are so many things to see and do in and around Norwich.

Get cultured at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts

Located on the University of East Anglia campus in Norwich, the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts is a museum and art gallery with two cafes, a charming gift shop and an array of permanent and temporary exhibitions, housed inside one of the most striking modernist buildings in Norwich. Pieces by artists such as Francis Bacon and Henry Moore, as well as artefacts from around the world spanning 5,000 years of human history, make a visit to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Art an immersive, fascinating, and educational experience.

Step back in time at Norwich Cathedral

Situated in central Norwich, just a stone’s throw from the historic Erpingham Gate, the building of Norwich Cathedral was completed in 1145, with stone spires erected later on in 1480. Its breath-taking Norman architecture and stunning cloisters make Norwich Cathedral a sight to behold, and with free admissions a visit makes for an affordable day out for all the family.

Stroll through the Plantation Garden

Situated smack bang in the centre of Norwich, the Plantation Garden, also known as the Secret Garden, is an ambient green space that is ideal for a bit of peace and quiet and the chance to reconnect with nature. A three-acre Grade II listed English Heritage garden in an old chalk quarry, the Plantation Garden offers visitors access to a Victorian-style greenhouse, beautiful flora, a gothic fountain, lawns, a terrace, and woodland walkways. As if that isn’t enough, you may also be in with the chance for a bit of bird spotting, and entry is only £2 per person. If you visit on a Sunday, you can also indulge in tea and cakes on the garden’s impressive lawn.

Bag some bargains at Norwich Market

Sitting on the outskirts of central Norwich’s Castle Quarter, Norwich Market is a sprawling outdoor market made up of around 200 stalls, selling everything from food and flowers to clothes and crafts. Among the oldest outdoor markets in the whole of the UK, Norwich Market was established by the Normans in the 11th century, and today it is open for business between Monday and Saturday every week. If you want to try some local delicacies, grab some fresh fruit and veg at competitive prices, or buy yourself a bouquet, Norwich Market is the place to go.

Catch a show at the Maddermarket Theatre

One of the most important places for culture vultures and arts buffs in central Norwich is the Maddermarket Theatre. A community theatre with a rolling programme of comedy, music, performance, and festive shows, the Maddermarket Theatre produces all of its work in partnership with local community groups, educational bodies and arts organisations. It also hosts an array of educational activities, classes, and specialist projects for the benefit of the local community.
