Norwich is a city and county ton of Norfolk in the East Anglia region on England. The city lies on the River Wensum and in May 2012 it was designated England's first UNESCO City of Literature. Norwich has a rich history of art, literature and publishing which continues to the present day. Norwich had the first provincial library in England, opened in 1608, and the city newspaper, the Norwich Post, was the first provincial newspaper outside London in 1701. Today, Norwich accounts for 5% of the United Kingdom's independent publishing output.
Visitors to Norwich are attracted to its cathedral, its cobbled streets, the museums of old Norwich, Norwich Castle, Cow Tower, Colman's Mustard Shop and Museum, Dragon Hall and The Forum. In addition to its architecture and monuments Norwich is also in the UK's top 10 destinations for shopping. The city has a good blend of national chain retailers and independent shops. Norwich Market is also one of the largest outdoor markets in England.
Each year the Norfolk and Norwich Festival celebrates the arts, drawing many visitors into the city from all over eastern England. The Norwich Twenty Group, founded in 1944, presents exhibitions of its members to promote awareness of modern art. Norwich was home to the first arts festival in Britain in 1772.
The university city of Cambridge in eastern England is a city of crocuses and daffodils, of green open spaces and cattle grazing only 500 yards from the market square. The city, perhaps best known for its world class university, is also a world class centre for technology and science. The university was the site of Rutherford's pioneering work in nuclear physics as well as Crick and Watson's DNA work.
