The 2nd largest city in England during medieval times, Norwich has grown into a modern metropolis with a deep-rooted culture and loads of historical sights and attractions. A popular city for travellers, Norwich offers a long list of things to do and is the perfect departure point for exploring the east coast of England with your rental car. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations and a large fleet selection, so finding a car rental in Norwich is both easy and economical.
The pride and joy of the city and its inhabitants are without a doubt Norwich Cathedral, which was built in the 12th century. Regarded as a magnificent church in excellent condition, the cathedral is also the 2nd largest in the UK, with the spire towering 96m above the ground. Drive your rental car into the city centre to visit the cathedral, which is also located a short distance from a number of great attractions.
In the very heart of the city lies Norwich Castle, an impressive building which dates back to the 11th century. Although only a section of the original castle remains, it is in excellent condition and contains the Norwich Castle Museum, filled with many great collections. A whole day can easily be spent here, and you can choose from displays on archaeology, natural history, and geology, as well as a gallery containing many great works of art.
Drive your hire car just south of here, where you can visit another of Norwich's spectacular historical buildings, Dragon Hall. A trading hall built in the 1400's, the building was almost lost after years of neglect and renovations converting the interior into space for retailers. The hall was restored to its original glory in the late 1900s and is an impressive example of fine medieval craftsmanship.
For a scenic day trip, jump in your rental car and head east from Norwich, where you can explore the pristine Norfolk Broads. A network of lakes and rivers make up the Broads, which set the perfect setting for scenic walks, boating and fishing, a great day out for the whole family!
