Norwich is a relaxed and easy-going city just perfect for a long weekend break in England. The city is famous for its historical buildings, such as the castle and cathedral, and for its market – the largest open-air market in the UK. There are plenty of hotels to choose from, and we've put together a quick guide to the best places to stay in Norwich.

Hotels in Norwich City Centre

Norwich City Centre is home to many of the city’s main attractions including Norwich Castle, Norwich Market, and Norwich Cathedral. Most of the hotels in Norwich are located on the periphery of the old town, and vary from mid-range to luxury in price. It’s perfect for couples on a weekend break or older travellers who want to be within walking distance of Norwich’s key sights. This part of town is very easy to walk around or, alternatively, bus services run through this area.  

Hotels in Thorpe Hamlet

A small hamlet and suburb of Norwich, Thorpe Hamlet is home to many great Norwich hotels. Most hotels fall into the mid-range pricing category, and offer good quality accommodation at a reasonable price. Thorpe Hamlet is a 20-minute walk from the bars and restaurants in Norwich or 11 minutes by rail to the Castle Meadow stop in the city centre. As it’s a little bit out from the town centre, Thorpe Hamlet would be most suitable for families, older travellers, and those that don’t need to be in the heart of Norwich at night.

NORWICH city centre is easy to walk around and has a river at its heart. It has superb shopping, lively restaurants, bars and nightlife and a heritage that is a delight to explore. Its landmarks include the majestic Norman Cathedral, the domineering Castle and City Hall’s clock tower. Art lovers should make their way to the Sainsbury Centre. The city has the largest undercover market in Europe, Norwich Market as well as many museums and theatres, ancient pubs, cobbled streets such as Elm Hill, great historic buildings and half-timbered houses. The City of Norwich Aviation Museum (12 miles) is located outside the city centre with parking facilities.
