Need something to cool you down as the weather warms up? Here's a look at some of the places in Norwich serving up cold delights - from iced coffee to alcoholic ice lollies, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

Warwick St Social are updating this tradition and adding their own twist by creating a range of homemade ice lollies for adults inspired by popular alcoholic drinks like a gin and tonic. Currently the G&T ice lolly is the only flavour available, but the team are busy experimenting with other flavours such as mojito and prosecco.
