Norwich Norwich, described as the most complete medieval city in the UK, seemed worth at least a day trip, but while sections of the old city retained medieval structures, large areas were post-war, rebuilt after German bombing that had deliberately targeted propaganda-rich targets of cultural and historic significance rather than strategic importance. More were lost to later twentieth century revitalization and road construction. The result, to our minds, was a city with a more modern urban vibe than medieval character. While a little disappointed by the lack of medieval character, the city seemed eminently liveable and was a pleasure to explore.
