Hey there! Allow me to introduce myself – I am Abbey, and I’m a 22-year-old blogger and archaeology student. I blog over at www.abbeylouisarose.co.uk. My blog comprises a mix of topics; I like to think of it as my own personal space on the internet where I can write about anything and everything that interests me! I post about travel, days out, fashion, creative projects, food, and loads more besides.
Why I chose to write about Norwich…
I was born in rural Suffolk, and I have lived on a farm there for most of my life. Norwich, the place I’ll be profiling today, is my local city – teenage Abbey used to love visiting every weekend with her friends when we’d shop til we dropped in Primark and mooch around the shopping centres like total cool kids! Norwich still remains one of my favourite places to visit whilst I’m at home even though I’ve grown up a lot since my first adventures there! I’m excited to be able to share its hidden delights with you!
5 things to see and do in Norwich
The Gravity Trampoline Park
The Gravity Trampoline Park is a must-visit if you’re in the mood for a high-octane activity! You can bounce on the huge open trampoline area, fend off attacks in the dodgeball court, and take on your friends in the slam-dunk zone! I absolutely love this place and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it!
The Medieval Streets of Elm Hill are also worth a visit. Tranquil and picturesque, they’re the perfect venue for snapping a few shots of historic Norwich. The cobbled streets and the old shops really take you back in time!
A visit to Norfolk wouldn’t be complete without spending some time on the broads! Norfolk has over 125 miles of navigable waterways and you can enjoy these by taking a cruise for the day! Being surrounded by nature and spotting all of the wildlife is just beautiful!
Take a wander around Norwich’s Historic Parks
Taking a wander around Norwich’s gorgeous historic parks is another must! My favourite is Eaton Park. Entry to the grounds is free, and there are wide open spaces to roam, as well as a cute café to stop off at for a cuppa! In the Park, you can also treat yourself to a round of mini-golf, which is a lot of fun!
Escape Game at Norwich Guildhall
Another activity that has come highly recommended from a friend of mine is the Escape Game at Norwich Guildhall. Archived Alive is a game filled with puzzles, stories, and surprises – the aim is to save Norwich’s historian from certain death…
Abbey’s Recommendation for Food & Drink in Norwich
I have reviewed a couple of top Norwich eateries, as well as some other attractions over on my blog!
I’ve also heard great things about Ruth’s kitchen and its street food, the homemade falafel comes highly recommended!
