Norfolk and Waveney are great places to live and that’s not just our opinion! A number of locations were featured in the Sunday Times Best Places to Live list for 2018. With its long coastline and variety of scenic interests including woodland, forests and the Norfolk Broads the Norfolk landscape is filled with ancient churches, windmills and picturesque villages. As a contrast the vibrant university city of Norwich offers a wonderful fusion of the modern and historic and is the only English city in a National Park. The waterways of the Broads extend into Waveney, which runs along the border of Norfolk and Suffolk. The Waveney Valley is an unspoilt haven of wildlife, idyllic villages and market towns where you can find plenty of ways to escape the frantic pace of everyday life.
