Situated about 100 miles northeast of London, Norwich is a prominent city in East Anglia, bearing the badge of honour as the county town of Norfolk. Dusted with a rich historical tapestry, Norwich owes much of its past to the Iceni tribe and later, to its role as the Roman capital of East Anglia. A large part of its cityscape, including the Norwich Castle, dates back to the glory days following the Norman Conquest, making it a treasure trove for history enthusiasts.

During the Middle Ages, Norwich wore the crown as a hub for the wool trade, establishing broad trading links across Europe, thereby serving as an epicentre for cultural exchange. This prosperous period sowed the seeds of urbanisation and societal change, especially during the 17th-century golden era of the cloth industry. The city's emblem, a castle and a lion, nods towards its royal loyalty during The English Civil War.

Through the ages, Norwich has opened its arms to a tapestry of communities, its cultural richness reflecting the Flemish and Walloon influences that found a welcoming home here. The Norwich Canary, a symbol of the city, was brought to England by the Flemish seeking refuge.

In 2012, Norwich earned the title of being the first UNESCO City of Literature in England, testament to its vibrant community and cultural richness. An immersive experience awaits you – just a click away with LycaFly's range of beautiful accommodations.

When to visit Norwich
