worth visiting??

Thinking of going away for easter with my fiance......went to york a couple of years ago which was lovely and am looking for something similar. Just for a relaxing break, nice food drink and a bit of sightseeing. Does norwich fit the bill??? Thanks in advance!!

Yes! Norwich is a lovely city - parking is a bit of a devil, in my opinion, but like York it's an easy city to walk around, see the sights, and lots of lovely pubs, cafes etc. Good shops, too, and of course surrounded by pretty countryside.

Norwich is a lovely place, with some nice old buildings and lanes, and a huge market, but not as much to see as York. Another possibility might be Canterbury

We have visited York 30+ times in the past decade following on from when my Wife worked for Norwich Union and had to go up there some weeks. It is definitely comparable to York although far less touristy. Unfortunately Sunday nights can resemble a ghost town but Friday and Saturday there is always something happening. Lots of great pubs (as many as York) but too many chain restaurants. For culture the castle and two cathedrals will keep you going as well as the Norwich lanes. Unfortunately the city wall was mostly demolished so no walking on that.

Of course living in Norwich we take it for granted but it is often forgotten about, not helped by the road infrastructure in and out, and is definitely well worth a visit.

“Something similar to York

Definitely would suggest Norwich then. Chester, Oxford, Cambridge and Canterbury would be the other obvious options but I would still say Norwich is the most similar to York.
