    Just wanted to see what current students and people living in the area thought about the nightlife in Norwich, heard some good things and some bad things but don't know what to believe?

    Thanks :-)

    UEA grad here, IMO it was somewhere in between. Not a huge selection of clubs but more than 2 unlike some small cities e.g. Canterbury. The LCR on campus is very popular and I always enjoyed it, then there are the clubs in town but they keep changing hands so I can't comment on whats open now. You also have lots of pubs and a few bars.

    I don't like nightlife generally, but I love that Norwich has a very wide selection of bars and pubs, that cater to a lot of different cultures. The city seems to have a very active music scene. There are a lot of options. I think Norwich is a really nice city for not being too big to get around easily, but being big enough to have lots to do and try. It's also a really inexpensive place. You'll save loads on your rent if you live there compared to other Universities in the South. Hubby and I rented a two bedroom house with two bathrooms and a garden for £500 a month when we lived there (2011-2012). Crazy...

    There is plenty to do in Norwich in the evening, you'll certainly find our Student Union has events going on throughout the week, you'd certainly struggle trying to fit it all in! When I was a student I was one night at a club night, at a music gig (seeing artists like Kaiser Chiefs, Lily Allen, Arctic Monkeys, Coldplay etc) the next, and then at a fancy dress night days later! See the gig list here: https://ueatickets.ticketabc.com/listings/

    You'll see here a flavour of go-to places in Norwich: https://www.uea.ac.uk/study/undergra...rwich-by-night

    It used to be said we had a pub in the city for every day of the year. Now if you picture that, it's difficult to argue we haven't got an active nightlife in Norwich! Plus with over 200 clubs and societies to get involved with they'll all be organising activities and socials for fellow students
