Study Abroad Programs - University of East Anglia
The University of East Anglia is located just outside the city of Norwich, only an hour from Cambridge and less than two hours from London. There are a lot of places to see in historical Norwich, such as the Norman castle and cathedral and plenty of medieval buildings. There are also oodles of fun dance clubs, restaurants, shopping centers, and theaters. Norwich is also known for its tranquil side: gardens, riverside paths, parks, cobbled streets, museums, and art galleries. This city has a wonderful medieval/modern blend.
