Be notified when a new unfamiliar destination is added.

Why

It’s not one of the cities you first think of when you think of the United Kingdom at all. It’s also fun to hear the people of Norwich speak and its actually pronounced “Norrich” just so you know. This university town houses a Norman castle and a cathedral that are worth seeing. If nothing else interest you, the architecture will.
