Was once a good music venue, but not anymore since it was sold out for a profit. Poor sound has made us leave 2 gigs now, terribly dank and devoid of any personality or style, dark, grey, souless, a veritable dump.

Worth a visit for the architecture. The Sainsburys art centre is also interesting. here you will find a variety of eclectic exhibits arranged as though they were displayed in a home rather than a museum. The university broad provides a leisurely stroll by the water...More

This place of learning has some great walks through woodlands and around the lake. You might even see a heron or two hunting the lake’s residents. When you’ve had enough of walking you can enjoy a bite to eat at the Sainsbury Centre of Visual...More

Has a very long history of cheap architecture (noisy and flimsy) drunkenness in the residences drugs and worse. Miserable grey wet concrete. Very politicised agenda. Not really respected by employers I found. Very smug and conceited attitude in many quarters. Might have been the coolest...More

Review of the UEA LCR for gigs only. It’s a terrible venue for gigs particularly if the gig is sold out. The bottom bit looks okay but the upper floor near the bar has such an obscured view because of all the concrete columns and...More

UEA LCR (Nick Rayns) Arena If there’s a specific entry for this I can’t find it. LCR is Norwich’s biggest gig venue outside of parks. Seen some cracking gigs here. It’s about 2,000 people and the atmosphere is great. If you’re a gig goer you’ve...More
