Not all universities warrant the listing as a significant attraction, but the campus of the University of East Anglia certainly does.
It is set in large parkland on the banks of the river in a beautiful location.
The original architecture is by Denys Lasdun and makes an iconic statement about the modernistic 1960's. Some may not like the stark concrete building, but you certainly can't argue that they impress.
Particular features of importance are the long teaching wall which contains the faculties ofr arts and social sciences, chemistry, biology and others. The library in the centre and its adjacent lecture theatre block also resonate with the time.
The square in the centre of the university has recently been re-worked, and is even more impressive than the original. This lies at the head of the shopping street.
Note the elevated walkways seperating pedestrains from service traffic.
Finally, the wonder of it all are the pyramidal Norfolk and Suffolk terraces, which are now listed buildings. These must be seen from the river side to fully appreciate the beauty of the buldings.
Parking is not free.
