How to choose the right university

About Norwich

Norwich isn’t just a great place to study, it’s also a wonderful place to live. Located just 90 minutes from London by train, Norwich is a vibrant and historic city which is a short bus ride away from UEA’s campus. Norwich isn’t just a beautiful city, it boasts a buzzing live music scene and an enviable number of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. It is also steeped in history and literary excellence and often voted as one of the best places to live in the UK (Times 2019). A perfect combination of old meets new, you’ll find underground crypts and cobbled streets alongside award-winning shopping centres. At the heart of Norwich city centre, its castle stands proudly overlooking the Norwich market, a fantastic foodie spot which was recently named best large outdoor market in Britain (Great British Market Awards 2019). Beyond the city, you’re surrounded by some of the UK’s most beautiful countryside and coastline. From beach trips, to bustling market towns and stately homes, to hiring a boat on the famous Norfolk broads, there is plenty to do in the area. Don’t just take our word for it though, why not spend a weekend exploring when you visit campus?
