Here are some key facts about Norwich:
  1. Norwich is a city in Norfolk in the East Anglia region of England.

  2. The city lies on the River Wensum.

  3. As of the 2011 census, Norwich had a population of 140,100 people (with 376,500 living in the city's metropolitian area).

  4. The first major settlement in the area was built by the Romans on the River Tas, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) to the South of present day Norwich (near the present day village of Caistor St Edmund). It was the Roman's regional capital, and called Venta Icenorum.

  5. The Anglo-Saxon then moved into the area beginning in about the mid 5th century, founding the town of Norwic (from which Norwich gets its name). This history is reflected in a local rhyme: "Caistor was a city when Norwich was none, Norwich was built of Caistor stone."

  6. For many centuries, Norwich vied with Bristol for being England's second city (after London.

  7. During the Industrial Revolution, many other cities in the UK grew rapidly, leaving Norwich behind. Norwich grew only relatively late and slow, probably because of it lack of industrial resources in the region, and the city's relative isolation from other parts of the UK.

  8. Historically shoe-making was an important part of Norwich's economy from the period of the Industrial Revolution onwards.

  9. Today, Norwich has a largely service-based economy, with financial services and insurance being a particularly important part of the economy. The city is home to Aviva (formerly known as Norwich Union).

  10. Norwich sits just to the North of the A47, which connects the city to Great Yarmouth, Kings Lynn, and Peterborough. It is also linked to Cambridgevia the A11, to Ipswich by the A140, and to Lowestoft by the A146.

  11. Norwich railway station provides regular services to London Liverpool Street, Liverpool Lime Street (via Peterborough, Nottingham and Manchester, and Cambridge, as well as several nearer destinations.

  12. Norwich Internation Airport is a feeder to KLM's Amsterdam Schipol hub. A number of other airlines also provide services to Norwich International Airport, and the airport is also known for its strong holiday charter business.
