THEATRE ROYAL, NORWICH

Standing proud in the centre of Norwich is the famous Norwich Theatre Royal. A multi million pound refurbishment took place in 2008 and changed everything. Access was made easier, a new resturant was fitted, new toilets, improved bar area and best of all the Carmen Electronic Archetecture system was installed which transformed the acoustics to concert hall standard - Norwich was becoming on par with other major cities
With shows from Madame Butterfly to Grease and The Chuckle Brothers, Norwich Theatre Royal has a show for everyone. The perfect day or night out with 2 bars and a resturant serving a variety of foods. 
Going for an evening performance and no dinner plans? We now offer a pre theatre dinner at 6pm. You would be able to have your starter and main course in plenty of time to arrive at the performance for the first act, then have your dessert and coffee when you return from the theatre. You are welcome to pre order your meal at 5.00pm, ready for service at 6.00pm prompt. Please ask at reception for more details

OLD AND NEW NORWICH

Elm Hill is one of the oldest streets in Norwich and  a step back in time.  It was mainly rebuilt after the great fire of 1507 but still keeps its Tudor character to the present day.  The small narrow cobbled streets are overlooked by Tudor Houses some of which are now little shops.  Its a rather amazing fact that there are more Tudor Houses in Elm Hill than in the whole City of London
The Sainsbury Centre for visual arts at the university of East Anglia has re opened to the public after its major refurbishment and building project.  Designed by Foster & Partners, the Sainsbury Centre is one of around a hundred university museums in the UK which are regulary open to the public.  Sir Robert (1906-2000) and Lady Lisa Sainsbury donated their collection of world art to the University of East Anglia in 1973 and the Sainsbury Centre first opened its doors in 1978.  It was Sainsburys hope that students, academic staff and the general public would grow to appriciate the works on display in much the same way that they did, by being able to look frequently and closely at them without the distraction of to much museum-style text and labelling. 

SHOPPING

If you want retail therapy, you can shop till you drop!  Norwich is open 7 days a week.  Modern precincts Chapelfield and Castle Mall with many of the big store names, the city also has the added attraction of the country’s largest 6-day open-air Market.  Norwich is also filled with hundreds of specialty shops in a maze of cobble-stoned lanes and alleys. From the big brand name shops to independent Boutiques, Norwich has it all! And for the guys............ plenty of real ale pubs scattered all over Norwich. Its said there was a pub for every day off the year in Norwich - times have now changed and some pubs have disappeared into the sunset, bet rest assured there is still many, many pubs out there just waiting for you!

Norwich is perfect for Christmas shopping with the chance to experience impressive displays of Christmas lights illuminating the City from mid November.  The annual Ice Skating Rink through the winter draws crowds outside the Forum too!
