The seven-acre site first opened to customers in September 1993 and took four years to complete.

Since then it has been a key destination for Norwich shoppers who can browse leading national chains such as Boots, TK Maxx, Peacocks and New Look.

The facility, which includes a substantial part of Norwich Castle and Castle Gardens, also boasts a Vue cinema and places where people can have something to eat and drink, like a Starbucks coffee shop.

Castle Mall will hold a day of activities tomorrow (Saturday, September 23) to mark the occasion, including party bags for kids and cake to celebrate.
