Norwich is the largest town in Norfolk, and was at one point the largest town in England but its population now rests at a little under 200,000. It's very densely populated compared to other parts of the UK, and therefore homes can be a little smaller than the average.
The recently renovated Norwich Market provides a focus point for the city centre, and helps maintain a vibrant prosperity to the area. Science, commerce and the Arts are all major focuses for the area, and theatres, museums and galleries are important parts of the town. The council also emphasises the important of parks and green spaces, maintaining an unusually high number of each.
The area to the West of the City centre is known as "The Golden Triangle" and is known as a particularly nice area to live, though in recent years its developed a sizeable student population. Large council estates in Larkman and Lakenham give lower rents in those areas. The new builds towards Thorpe Marriott and Dussindale may be more desirable to the majority. Northern suburbs like Sprowston and Hellesdon often offer more reasonable rents or purchase prices, while still having a good range of properties and plenty of green spaces nearby.
