Christmas Stays

What could be better after a day of Christmas shopping, than knowing that just a short walk or taxi ride away, there’s a comfy bed with your name on it.

Make the most of your visit here by stopping in Norwich for the weekend – it’s a city that is particularly special at Christmastime, and there’s too much to see (and do!) all in one day…

Escape to the country

One of the best things about Norwich is that you can drive from the city centre into rural Norfolk in a matter of minutes – less than half an hour in places. If your travels here are as much about exploring the iconic countryside and coastline, as it is about picking up your Christmas shopping, then you are truly spoilt for choice for places to stay.
