Might be there for an afternoon. What must be done there?
or the owl sanctuary
no more made up Partridge stuff cheers. More real Partridge stuff though!
It is neither in Norwich nor the car park for a country club.
just the scene in the train station really
was replaced by Apache Communications which I think is also sadly no more. :(
if its a sunny day, go to the playhouse bar, lovely garden by the river.
other nice bars include: frank's cafe, rumsey wells and the belgian monk.
other things include Norwich Castle, going for a bit of a shop/browse around the lanes and the sainsbury centre at the UEA (but this is quite far out of town)
that's about it.
this is East Anglia
Norwich castle is lovely! They have a shit load of taxidermy in the museum bit inside.
from there too
BOO. Will go back though as I love it and we want to move there when we're older
It's a lovely day to go to the seaside
Cathedral/castle are good, central marketplace is nice.
St Benedict's street is good to stroll down, plenty of interesting little shops to entice. Guess that falls under 'The Lanes' though.
There's some good art galleries & bits down Elm Hill too.
oh well, probably for the best.
might be going to a football match at Carrow Road. Might not though...
Carrow Road's lovely and its like the only thing I miss from home
How long should it take to get from the centre to the castle?
do you mean the stadium/train station? if so about 15 mins walk
shall do that then.
drink loads of Real Ale, obviously.
any pubs near the football stadium that are open late? will have to stay up for the 4am coach back to london.
basically no pubs open that late in norwuch but there are club/bars in the riverside complex near the stadium. Personally a horrifying though but hey :P Or if not the lovely prince of wales rd.
Is there anything Partridge-related that's worth going to? Like any Partridge-nerd mecca?
barely any of it was filmed here apart from the scene in the train station, although the recent 'places of my life' was.
And back to late bars probably the only one that isn't a complete hole is an irish place called Delaneys which closes at 2am, though its not that close to the ground/station (but Norwich is really small so you can get about walking pretty easily)
How long should it take to get to Delaneys? Need something to do til 4...
so about 10/15 minutes, most things take about 10/15 mins to walk in Norwich
Museum/historical - Castle Museum, Dragon Hall, Strangers Hall, Bridewell Museum, Sainsburys Centre.
Clubs - Waterfront, Carnival (all others are shite).
Record shops - St Benedicts Street. There's a fantastic market as well.
Outtakes from the Star Wars cantina scene - Magdalen Street.

Pretty much know what I'll do now...
Oh yeah, any idea what time the market's normally open til?
not too won over by the place as a whole but found a couple of really cool record shops, and it was a nice atmosphere in the stadium. Also there's some excellent taxidermy in the castle! Pubs (including Delaney's) were packed and noisy after the match so just ended up sitting in a kebab shop til 2.30 then sitting in the eerie dark and quiet of the market square for an hour. Tempted to shout "aha" but think there were some police paroling the area. Also some drunks. Good times.
not that I'm defensive over it or anything; I left for a reason - but why was it supposed to be winning you over?
I was just there for a few hours and was at a bit of a loose end...it felt quite isolated. But yeah I don't think anything bad of the place at all and was only there briefly.
its a pretty shitty place to be unless you have some solid plan to last all night, and even then that might not last you. Its lovely place but its very sleepy, I just enjoy visiting for friends and family these days!
My bro shared a house with him and allegedly suggested the 'Le'
