Norwich City Centre
Norwich city centre is a charming area with an abundance of independent shops, restaurants and theatres. As one of the UK’s top shopping destinations, the city is rich with vintage clothes and collectables.
Despite being the second largest mediaeval city in the UK and steeped with history and character, Norwich also has a thriving nightlife. There are a wide array of clubs, bars and gig venues to explore in the city, such as the esteemed ‘Franks Bar’ and the highly rated ‘Hawthorn’.
Its infamous outdoor market is the largest of its kind in the UK and serves as a hotspot for the lively population of Norwich.
If you are looking for a property with a river view, the banks of the River Wensum are full of stylish one and two bedroom apartments.
Just a short walk from the city centre, the Golden Triangle is a highly sought after area to live in Norwich. The golden triangle is popular with professionals and students alike because of the mix of great pubs, independent bars and restaurants.
The Golden Triangle is adjacent to three public parks: Heigham Park, Jenny Lind Park and Chapelfield Gardens.
The area’s strong sense of community and buzzing atmosphere makes it a desirable place to move to, and the prices of the houses are also lower than in the city centre.
Just two miles north of the city, Old Catton makes for the ideal place for families or older residents.
There are plentiful scenic walks and a strong sense of community in the village, making it a safe and welcoming area to live in.
However, due to the close proximity to Norwich, residents of Old Catton can be in the heart of the bustling city centre in no more than 25 minutes.
If you are looking for a spacious bungalow in Old Catton, Watsons can help you navigate through the market to find you your dream property.
