Norwich is one of the top 10 shopping destinations in the UK. The fine city is steeped in atmosphere and peppered with unique architectural treasures. There is plenty to fill a full day and offers something for everyone. Visitors can enjoy a cosmopolitan, buzzing and beautiful city with over 1,500 historical buildings, an exciting arts scene, wonderful outdoor activities, top shopping and delicious local produce food and drink. Norwich offers a rare blend of historic interest and modern sophistication which will exceed the expectations of any visitor.
Norwich is a great destination when it’s wet –there are plenty of restaurants and all the usual faces; Waggamama and Carluccio’s close to Chapelfield and the market, Pizza Express in the Forum and Jamie Oliver’s Italian in the Royal Arcade.
For children the Castle Museum has plenty to keep them amused and for adults there are superb displays of modern art, including special touring exhibitions. http://www.museums.norfolk.gov.uk/Visit_Us/Norwich_Castle/index.htm
Home Farm Cranmer was originally a dairy farm. Built in 1852 the Victorian buildings were designed as a model farm during Norfolk’s high farming period. We purchased the decaying outbuildings in 1998 with 7 acres of the original farmland. Today we are custodians of a further 168 acres of the arable farmland. We are keen to work alongside nature in preserving our rural landscape and are passionate about safeguarding the countryside for the benefit of future generations.
As part of our green commitment and dedication to ongoing conservation work at Home Farm our farmland has been entered into a HLS scheme managed by Natural England: primarily with preservation of the countryside and its inhabitants in mind.
“Natural England’s purpose is to conserve and enhance England’s natural environment – including its landscapes, biodiversity, geology and soils, natural resources, cultural heritage and other features of the built and natural environment.”
