An introduction to Norwich
The historical capital of East Anglia, Norwich is a city where the old and the new complement each other seamlessly, centred around the river Wensum that meanders through the heart of it. Some of its must-see sights include the Palladian splendour of Marble Hall and its towering Cathedral. Visitors should also make time for the Plantation Garden, the city's worst-kept secret, where you can enjoy a delicious freshly-brewed tea and homemade cakes, surrounded by intriguing Victorian architecture.
