A popular Norwich park has scooped an award from a national website thanks to great reviews from its visitors.

Eaton Park has been awarded the 'Certificate of Excellence' by destination advice website TripAdvisor, an award which can only be earned through gaining consistently high reviews on the company's website.

Out of 89 reviews on TripAdvisor, 55 classed the park as 'excellent', with 29 describing it as 'very good'.

The 80-acre park, situated between Bluebell Road, North Park Avenue and South Park Avenue, is the largest of the city's collection of historic green spaces.

The park is maintained by Norwich Norse (Environmental) Ltd, which looks after the range of features the park has to offer, including a rose garden, a skate park and a children's play area.
