Norwich is a vibrant city only eight miles away, it is easily accessed by a park and ride system or trains run every hour from Wroxham train station, the journey takes approx. 15 minutes. Norwich has history, architecture, art, museums, shopping and leisure activities, The Norman castle dominates the city from its vantage point on a hill. A formidable fortress, built in 1160, it once served as the county gaol, but now enjoys a more genteel existence as the Castle Museum, housing a fine array of British ceramic teapots and some splendid paintings. There are 33 medieval churches, and outshining them all, the magnificent cathedral, with its solid Norman arcades and splendid soaring Gothic architecture – some of the best in Britain. Many other fine buildings can be found, sometimes tucked away down little alleyways and quiet courtyards. Wandering the cobbled streets, it is easy to feel the history of this ancient city. There are several museums, and the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts which has some splendid paintings and sculptures by Picasso and Henry Moore, as well as work from Africa and the Americas.
