Visiting Norwich

A city with character to spare, Norwich sits on the River Wensum in East Anglia and boasts medieval architecture, a number of top shopping centres, independent stores (particularly in and around Norwich Lanes) and markets, and a surprisingly busy nightlife.

For history buffs, Dragon Hall, which dates from 1430, is a medieval trading hall that is rather unique, being the only one of its kind that belonged to an individual, rather than a guild. The hall is so-named for an ornate carving of the eponymous creature that sits amidst the building’s arched beams. Felbrigg Hall, meanwhile, is an opulent, 17th century country estate owned by the National Trust, which has been notably unaltered since it was first constructed. There is also, of course, the gorgeous 12th century Norwich Cathedral and Norwich Castle, the medieval fortification built by the Normans to protect the royal family. It now houses a number of museums, fine art collections and plenty more besides.

Speaking of fine art, the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, located on the UEA campus, contains works by some of the most revered artists in recent history and there are numerous creative spaces dotted around the city, such as the artist-run Outpost gallery. Norwich is truly a city renowned for its culture.

Coach Hire Norwich

Booking a trip to or from Norwich any time soon? Allow us to compare the top coach operators in the area for you. Our operators range from independent, family-owned and run businesses, to some of the largest national coach companies in the UK and we leave it up to you to make the choice. We get you free quotes and provide the introductions and you take it from there. Input your journey and we’ll fetch up to four no-obligation quotes from our network of operators. Once you’re in touch with the coach operator of your choice, they will take you through all of the options available to you, including vehicle type and size. A task that could have taken hours condensed into a matter of minutes. Our price comparison tools also make sure you know exactly what you’re paying and what you’re paying for, with full price breakdowns, vehicle specs and images offered alongside your quotes.

Our operators will also, of course, provide you with drivers who know the roads of the Norwich area (and the east of England in general) better than anyone. From deluxe, double-decker coaches with reclining seats, Wi-Fi, bathroom facilities and more, to more reserved models for shorter trips, you’ll have plenty to choose from. Whichever package you choose, however, you can rest assured that any recommended company has been fully vetted by us. We only put you in touch with companies we know and trust.

Minibus Hire Norwich

Using the same system as our coach hire comparison tool, we can put you in touch with a number of operators based in Norwich who offer minibus and driver hire for a reasonable price. A minibus is a perfect solution if your trip involves a smaller group or is a little shorter, with minibuses offering speedier travel and more flexibility.

Our minibus hire comparison system works in precisely the same way as our coach hire system. Input your requirements and we’ll match you with the local operators that we feel best match them. We take zero commission on our matches and you deal with the companies directly, so once we’ve made the connection, you are free to deal with them as you wish.
