Norwich information

On the banks of the river Wensum in the East of England sits the city of Norwich, with an urban area population of over 190,000.

In the Middle Ages, the town and its surrounding areas profited from the sale of wool, making Norwich one of the most affluent towns in the country. A great many churches remain standing there to this day, testament to the wealth of the time. Centuries later, the cloth trade brought more financial success to the region, allowing Norwich to develop and grow even more into one of the most cultured areas in the country. In light of its history as a hub of creativity, Norwich was also recently named as the first English City of Literature thanks to its rich cultural history and regular celebrations of its literary past - alumni of the UEA's famous creative writing courses include Ian McEwan and Kazuo Ishiguro.

The city's primary sporting attraction is Carrow Road, home of Norwich City Football Club and the Canaries, as they are known, share a strong rivalry with their East Anglian neighbours, Ipswich.

Winter temperatures in Norwich are around half a degree warmer than the UK average. February is the coldest month with daytime minimums around 1.3 °C. There are notably more days of air frost in February than any other month and the figure halves from February to March. It's also the driest time of year with only 41.7 mm of rainfall accumulation. Winter isn't the wettest time of year for Norwich, although there are more days of rainfall greater than 1 mm than any other season.

Average daytime maxima in Norwich increase from 10 °C in March to nearly 16 °C by May. This is around a degree warmer than the UK average. It's rare, although not unheard of for an air frost to develop in May. May is the sunniest month of the year with an average of 212 sunshine hours. Average sunshine hours are actually lower in June. Spring in Norwich is the driest time of the year with rainfall accumulation around 140 mm - though there are fewer 'rain days' in summer.

August is the hottest time of the year in Norwich with an average high of 21.4 °C. July's average maximum is virtually the same and it is also the sunniest month in Norwich, with 203.5 sunshine hours on average. Rainfall accumulation throughout the summer months totals 181.6 mm. This is below the UK average and makes summer the second wettest season.

Temperatures fall in autumn from 18.6 °C in September to 10.4 °C by November. Rainfall accumulation in Norwich is highest during autumn. October and November have the joint highest rainfall totals of any month at 68.2 mm, although this is still below the national average. Air frost starts to develop in October and the number of air frost days increases significantly by November.
