Discover Norwich

England’s first UNESCO City of Literature

In 2012 we led the successful bid for the city to become England’s first UNESCO City of Literature, joining a prestigious and growing network of creative cities worldwide.

We celebrate Norwich’s heritage as a place of ideas, where the power of words has been changing lives for hundreds of years. We nurture the city’s contemporary writers and through our UNESCO Young Ambassador programme support young people to share their love of reading, writing, books and ideas with their schools and wider community.
