    From old to new in Norwich

    Sometimes it's hard to believe that Norwich is a city at all. Its medieval centre is a warren of little alleys and offshoots. Hemmed in by handsome Tudor-style homes and pubs, they look the picture of rural England. But go beyond that historic heart and you come to a place that pulses with life and energy. Students bolster the bars and all sorts of walkers and outdoorsy types pass through, eyes set on sandy coastlines and Norfolk's wild wetlands. Norwich holiday rentals can be found in the old city or out in the quieter suburbs.

    Shops and stony streets in Norwich

    Norwich holiday rentals in the old heart of the city are a great place to base yourself if you're looking to be immersed in this Norfolk hub. You'll sleep with towering cathedral spires overhead and walk out onto lanes of cobbles, where tearooms and live-music pubs spill onto the slabs. The shopping is excellent. Countless boutiques selling independent clothing and handcrafted jewellery punctuate the whole area, while Norwich Market – said to be the largest uncovered market in the UK – is a colourful mishmash of trinkets and antiques and cheeses.

    Go deeper into Norwich's past

    Once you're done tasting local produce and chinwagging with the folk of Norwich Market, you should be sure to set aside some time to uncover the history of this corner of England. There's nowhere better to do just that than in the soaring keep of Norwich Castle. It stands tall on a bluff above town, keeping watch since William the Conqueror raised its mighty bulwarks. Inside are art collections and other relics that unravel tales of Anglo-Saxons and Celtic tribes, of Viking raiders, and even the kings of ancient Egypt.

    UK seasons, Norwich style

    Norwich follows precisely the same weather pattern as the rest of the UK, only it might enjoy slightly higher temperatures on account of its southerly location. The spring hits in April and May, bringing plenty of people eager to see the Norfolk Broads coming to life. The summer is the most popular time for travellers. Norwich holiday rentals between June and August are great bases for wandering the streets and sightseeing in the castles, thanks largely to the drier days and mercury levels hitting around 20 degrees.

    Norwich – a ticket to The Broads

    Norwich sits in the eastern half of Norfolk County. The Norfolk Broads technically begin in the centre itself, as the River Yare starts to spread out and meander around oxbow lakes and wetlands. In fact, that reserve of waterways and grasslands and ponds is one of the main reasons people look to book Norwich holiday rentals. Outdoorsy types can go boating their way through a medley of green pastures and reedbeds, bogs, and muddy fields where windmills creek. Rare species include the mallard and greylag goose, so keep the eyes peeled.
