We love Norfolk, Nelson’s County, and we’re so proud to have an office right in the heart of it, in Norwich.

Whenever Norfolk is mentioned, however, most people solely associate it with Delia Smith and Alan Partridge, but we promise there’s more to Norfolk than that…

  1. It’s one of the happiest regions in the UK to live and work – In fact Norwich was voted the #1 happiest place to work in the UK, as well as the best place to bring up children
  2. House prices are some of the lowest in the UKNorwich_Skyline
  3. It’s the safest place to live in the U.K – it has the lowest crime rate out of any county in the UK.
  4. You’re never too far from the beach – North Norfolk in particular has a beautiful coastline and is calm and tranquil, but if you want something more lively and touristy, you can head to Great Yarmouth or Lowestoft
  5. Lots of art and history – Norwich has two cathedrals and a castle, all of which you can visit while there are also several stately homes such as Blickling Hall which was the home of Henry VIII, Somerleyton Hall and of course, the Queen’s Christmas residence in Sandringham.
  6. We love books – Norwich was the first city in the UK to be awarded the UNESCO City of Literature StatusAerial_View_of_Great_Yarmouth
  7. The Norfolk Broads – miles and miles of beautiful rivers, scenery, windmills and of course pubs to take a lovely boat trip on a weekend
  8. Great food and drink – Norwich is quickly becoming a real destination for foodies with several independent street food vendors, cafes and restaurants as well as plenty of pubs and breweries to keep you going
  9. Independent businesses – you won’t struggle to find independent alternatives to high street retailers, if you like keeping things local!
  10. Even town centres are pretty – We have lots of beautiful cobbled streets and paths to wander down and get lost
  11. National icon and funny man Stephen Fry grew up in Swaffham

And finally, we’re currently recruiting for 132 jobs in Norfolk, so why wouldn’t you want to come here?
