What a spectacular place. Cafes, exhibition halls and a massive public library and so much more. A great focal point for visitors and locals alike.

There was a Lego Exhibition on when we visited plus a photographic exhibition in the open area. Apart from bars and the library upstairs not a lot to see.

We always enjoy our visits to the Forum . There is often an exhibition on some aspect of Norfolk life but what we particularly enjoy is the view from the Pizza Express restaurant. Well worth a visit!

The Forum is not only geographically at the centre of Norwich, in terms of its roles, activities and facilities it could be called the heart of Norwich. The building has no history, unlike the countless fine buildings in our fair city. It is modern, vast,...More
