Spending Valentine’s in Norwich?

by Natalie Froome

Looking for somewhere to take your significant other this Valentine’s Day? Want something a bit different and impressive for a date?

Here we’ve compiled a short list of Norwich’s hidden gems, places a little out of the ordinary or off the beaten track for an extra special Valentine’s.

1. The Plantation Garden

Just outside the city centre, the Plantation Garden is described as a ‘secret garden’ in the heart of Norwich. It’s a ‘beatiful and tranquil’ place, perfect for a romantic stroll (providing the weather is good!)

2. The Sainsbury Centre For Visual Arts

A little obvious perhaps, but it’s on campus and the permanent collection is free to wander around. It also has a great coffee shop and is suitable if it’s raining outside!

3. Country and Eastern

For those couples who are a little more on the artsy-bohemian side, try a visit to Country and Eastern. Once a skating rink, this massive building now holds a huge collection of antiques, books and crafts.

4. Dine out!

Norwich has some great independent restaurants and one of my favourites is Captain America’s Hamburger Heaven. Just opposite Jarrolds, this restaurant is hidden away upstairs and serves THE BEST burgers in Norwich. It’s set out like an old American Diner and covered in comic book memorabilia. It’s only small so getting there early or booking is recommended.
