Unique Gifts and Things To Do in NorwichSituated in the heart of Norfolk, on the outermost edge of the stunning Norfolk Broads National Park, lies the city of Norwich. Home to the Canaries, and brimming with landmarks and tourist attractions in its compact city centre, Norwich is a place of character and charm. Whether you are visiting Norfolk for a quiet weekend break, or are looking for things to do in your local area, you are sure to find the answer in Norwich.
First time visitors to the city of Norwich will be spoilt for choice with sightseeing tours to help you get your bearings – whether you choose to travel by wheels, water, or good old fashioned walking, there is an orientation tour to suit all. Having explored the city highlights from the outside, you will probably want to get a little more up close and personal with some of Norwich’s best-loved attractions…
The city’s most famous landmark – Norwich Castle – is a hit with visitors and locals alike. Originally built as a Norman Royal Palace, over 900 years ago, the Castle now houses collections of fine art, natural history, as well as the permanent interactive Boudica exhibition and Royal Norfolk Regimental Musuem. Other historical hot-spots include Houghton Hall and Gardens, and of course the architectural marvel of Norwich Cathedral. If you’re looking for something a little more active then why not head outdoors for a Paintball challenge, a Dry-Slope Skiing Lesson at the local Snowsports Club, or a cycling session at the BMX track?
Visitors looking to treat themselves to some retail therapy will not be disappointed...Norwich is a shopper’s paradise, housing everything from high street labels, to independent shopping lanes, and six-day-a-week market places selling trinkets, knick-knacks, and delicious street foods. And if all that shopping becomes a little too much, then why not sit back and relax with a Wine Tasting experience, or a sumptuous meal for two at one of the city’s many celebrated restaurants and cafes.
Those looking to really push the boat can quite literally do so, with a Private River Trip along the Norfolk Broads on a luxury cruiser...or perhaps you’d prefer to take in the picturesque landscapes of the National Park from the skies? With a selection of Light Aircraft Flying Lessons and Hot Air Ballooning experiences available, there is an airborne activity for every budget.
So whether you are visiting Norwich yourself and are looking for fun days out, or are seeking the ideal experience gift for a special occasion, Experience Days has the answer.
