How to get there
Norwich is the county town of Norfolk and it is a popular holiday spot with tourists, but other people arrive at the airport on their way to visit friends and family in this part of the country. The city also has a thriving business community and many people who pass through the airfield are on a work related trip.
The airfield is well served by public transport and road links. There’s a large NCP car park, an onsite cafe, a bar, shops and a Foreign Exchange outlet. The location enables you to easily access all that the city has to offer, including Norman cathedrals and churches, cobbled streets and museums. It is also close to a number of picturesque rural villages and scenic coastlines.
There is no railway station at NWI. The closest train station is Norwich Rail Station, approximately 4 miles away or a 20 minute taxi ride away.
Both Greater Anglia and East Midlands Trains offer rail connections. The station is the northern terminus of the Great Eastern Main Line from London Liverpool Street. It is also the terminus of railway lines from Ely, Sheringham, the seafront town of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft.
Regular park and ride bus services connect the airport with the city center. Buses are operated by Norse. The stop is just a few minutes walk from the terminal.
First Eastern Counties Buses offers services to Hellesdon which is within walking distance of the airport. building.
Taxis are available directly outside the terminal building.
NWI international is easy accessible via the A140 road, which travels from Ipswich via Norwich to the seaside town of Cromer.
Where to stay for the night ?
From grander resort-style hotels to smaller historic guest houses, Norwich has plenty of choice when it comes to booking great quality accommodation. If you like to be in the heart of town, you can choose to stay in a large city hotel with a riverside location that’s close to shops and restaurants. In this category, there are laid back boutique-style hotels with stylish interiors and designer toiletries, or stately hotels in Georgian buildings with all the sumptuous period detail you’d expect.
Larger properties are well appointed with mini bars and places to eat onsite. If you are stopping over for just 24hrs, you can order room service if you’d prefer to take breakfast in bed, or dine in your hotel’s restaurant if you arrive on an evening flight.
Guest houses and Bed and Breakfasts are another option if you’re planning to spend a few nights close to the aerodrome. Some of these are also located close to the city centre amenities, quirkily set in buildings which used to be shops or pubs, or in informal family homes. Others enable you to see more of Norfolk’s rural beauty, by staying in a country home, a barn conversion, or a working farm. Villages like Hickling and Loddon are quintessentially East Anglian and make the ideal setting for an extended break in peaceful Norfolk.
Choosing a self catering home near to Norwich airport is ideal if you prefer a holiday which unfolds at your own pace. You can stay in a chocolate box cottage in a remote location, if you plan to get away from it all for a couple of days. Alternatively, if you’re looking forward to exploring Norwich by day and night, you could go for a slick city centre apartment which offers easy access to shops, restaurants and bars.
