Norwich is a fine city, full of history and culture, so it's no surprise that thousands of people each year decide to visit on holiday or make it their permanent home. Here are a few things newcomers are likely to pick up on pretty quickly.
• It's pronounced 'Norridge' not 'Norwitch'.
• You need to have the exact amount of money for your bus fare. Start throwing around £20 notes (or even £5 notes) and you'll probably get kicked off the bus.
• Trying to get a taxi on a Saturday after 1am is essentially impossible.
• The city centre is a ghost town on Sunday afternoons.
You may also want to watch:
• You can only wear green and yellow at the same time if there's a football match on.
• There isn't much point in trying to drive in the city, the constant road closures and roadworks will drive you insane.

• You definitely won't starve either.
• You have to buy a rail card if you plan to travel by train, otherwise it will cost you a fortune to get anywhere.
• There's always something new to discover, whether it be a boutique shop, a quaint street, or an event you didn't know was taking place.
• On Prince of Wales Road, every night is Saturday night, you can party on any day that ends in Y.
