Norwich — more than orrite
There's loads to see and do in the area around Norwich Pirate Studios. Take a walk through Trowse along the River Yare and you’ll end up at Whitlingham Country Park, arguably the city's finest spot for outdoor pursuits and a glorious location for a mid-rehearsal break.
A detour towards the city centre will take you past Carrow Road, the home of Norwich City FC, and onto Norwich Market, a prime shopping spot for locals and out-of-towners. Hungry? Biddy's Tea Room on Lower Goat Lane has a selection of pastries to die for.
