Norwich has consistently been voted as one of the top ten shopping destinations in the UK”
The city has an enormous collection of different shops from small boutiques selling the latest fashions, vintage clothes and shoes, to independent stores that offer shoppers modern, designer household goods and high quality furniture.

The pedestrianised area known as ‘Gentleman’s Walk’ is home to many popular high-street stores as well as the Norwich Market which dates back to the 11th Century. The market was improved and modernised in 2006; it’s a hub of activity and has 200 stalls stacked high with lots of different bargains!
Close to the Norwich Market and ‘Gentlemen’s Walk’ is the Royal Arcade. This is an extraordinary shopping arcade with lots of charming shops. It was built in the arts and crafts style by George Skipper in 1899, who was also responsible for designing the Surrey Street headquarters of Norwich Union and the iconic Hotel de Paris in Cromer.
