"I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming."

"For me, the InterNations events are the best part. I attend almost every get-together and always get to know lots of friendly fellow expats."

Living in Norwich

Norwich is a strange combination of traditional English village and rapidly growing city. On the one hand, there are no shortage of idyllic cobbled streets, canal ways, medieval churches and Tudor dwellings. But on the other hand, the High Street could have been lifted from any British city, recognizable brand names and shiny office blocks hinting at ongoing economic development. For any new expats in Norwich, it is worth taking a moment to soak up the city’s fascinating history. Visit the exquisite Cathedral, which is dedicated to the Holy and Undivided Trinity, and the Cow Tower, a historic military tower, to get a feel for the way the city has changed over the years. Fellow expatriates living in England are usually keen to share their tips for assimilating into the local culture, so check out the InterNations discussion boards to get an idea of what to expect from modern life in a small English city.

Moving to Norwich

Norwich is situated on the east coast of England, just a couple of hours by train from London. The United Kingdom is famous for its vast train network, so if you are moving to Norwich from elsewhere in the country, you will have no trouble finding your way. The UK’s employment laws for expats mirror those of the European Union, so if you are a non-EU resident moving to Norwich, check up on the legal requirements for living and working in the city before you leave. The UK is a cosmopolitan country, so it won’t be hard to find like-minded people or expatriates from your own homeland. Nevertheless, when in doubt, just head to the local pub or use the InterNations platform to get in touch with fellow expats living in Norwich and across the globe!

Working in Norwich

Norwich’s city center is comparatively small, and many expatriates working in Norwich prefer to commute from the suburbs or surrounding areas. Norwich is just a few miles from the beach, and surrounded by the classic English countryside, so Anglophiles may be tempted to buy into the idea of country life in the evenings and weekends, using the city simply for work. The English working day typically starts at 9am and ends at 5pm, with a 30-60 minute break for lunch. Most English workers get 28 days holiday per year, plus approximately 8 national or ‘bank’ holidays, a fact that any expatriate working in Norwich will surely be glad to hear. Find out more about working life in England, and compare notes on your own expat experience, through the InterNations forums and discussion boards.
