Norfolk

 

 

Norwich Research Park is set in 230 hectares of parkland within easy reach of Norwich city Centre. Recently voted the happiest place in the country for work-life balance and career contentment, Norwich provides a great quality of life combined with the best elements of a modern city. Norwich is also one of the greenest cities in the UK, with miles of riverside walks and cycle tracks, unique 1930s parks, and acres of woodland running right into the vibrant city centre.

Norfolk has nearly 100 miles of unspoilt coastline; 280 sq miles are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the famous Norfolk Broads are among the most important wetlands in Europe and a haven for rare plants, wildlife and insects.

The county's peaceful landscape and big skies are an enormous draw for those who want a higher quality of life and a work-life balance that is more than just an aspiration.

Wherever you choose to live, you are no more than an hour from the coast. Unique, unspoilt countryside, forests, miles of sandy beaches and the Norfolk Broads combine to make Norfolk one of the most attractive places for families to make a home.

The sports facilities on the Norwich Research Park are outstanding, including the recently built Sportspark on the UEA campus which hosts a competition size swimming pool, gym club, athletics track, climbing wall and facilities for a wide range of other sports.

The Whitlingham Country Park is only a mile from the City Centre but offers a number of activities at the Whitlingham Outdoor Education Centre from sailing and sculling to off road biking. Unlikely though it might sound - it is home to a dry ski slope!
