Use to been the main high street now it's loads of restaurants and shops with loads of different things it's nice to see another side of Norwich. The main and best thing I think is Epic Studios which has loads to offer and a very nice cafe.

It is about time some money was injected into this area to update it and turn it into the wonderful street that it could be. The retailers deserve better than this. I can remember as a child walking down that road and the wonderful individual shops that were available was great - I remember taking my doll to the dolls... More

Lovely old street that has a lof history. Don't be put off by the 'character' - this just adds charm to the place! Great antique shops and odd little places you wouldn't know existed..

We had to come here to Magdalen Street as we are collectaholics and we like to trundle around antique/collectors shops, and the odd charity shop. There are 2 big(ish) centres (looses and alladin's cave) and various other shops inc a clock shop (my speciality) with a large Oxfam charity shop. Plenty to see and buy if you can find the... More

We always go to the glasshouse most Friday nights for a couple of wines and food. Nice atmosphere friendly staff and excellent value for money.

this street carries so many different cultures, always lively, people passing through always appear cheerful and smiling. This road has kept most of it's heritage and feels alive at any time of day.

I like picking up second-hand furniture and bits at a good price so I always head there.It used to be the heart of Norwich shopping before the Castle Mall centre was built.This is the place to pick up ingredients for your asian cooking as well.Not as pretty as other Norwich places but the shops are fine and staff are pleasant.
