Living In Norfolk
There are few counties in England that are as diverse as Norfolk, with so many different personalities.
There’s so much to do and see here, with many good reasons to live and work in the county: vibrant culture, great shopping, history, the unique Norfolk Broads National Park, famous seaside resorts and beautiful coastlines, forests and countryside, excellent transport links, great food and a relatively affordable cost of living among them. A beautiful county it is, but there’s so much more to Norfolk than its ‘good looks’ and a wide range of business and industry thrives here, bringing good employment opportunities.
At the hub, is a thriving modern city with a magnificent cathedral and cherished medieval heritage. Visit Norwich as the ideal place for retail therapy and the best preserved medieval city in the country.
Beyond Norwich there are well-preserved market towns and picturesque villages, from Georgian glory to thatch and flint; an ancient landscape of cultivated arable fields and farms, grazing and pastureland, punctuated by the unique man made Broads National Park, the rolling countryside of South Norfolk, the sandy pine forests and heathlands of the Brecks and the wilderness wetlands of the Fens close to King’s Lynn and The Wash.
Living and teaching in Norfolk will mean you can experience English country living and whilst there are some larger towns, the majority of the area of Norfolk is made up of small villages, with local country pubs, and plenty of opportunities for dog walkers, seaside lovers, and outdoor-goers alike. Make sure you check out Hunstanton Beach, for one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the UK.
