Lovely open space. Great for exhibitions. Toilet facilities were perfect. Library, Tourist Information and bars and restaurants to boot. A great meeting place!

I wouldn't advise the salad, had that yesterday evening, went there for my birthday with the family, and as I am doing Slimming World, had the salad, what a mistake, limp lettuce, and a few soggy beans, all in all quite tasteless.

A fantastic library that is popular with locals and tourists alike, a lovely addition to the fine city, great architecture, often events are on inside or outside it. Well worth a visit, also has public loos, pizza express and a coffee shop. Essential visit.

The forum is a good meeting place. We used to meet my son there for lunch when he was at the Norwich School of Art when we stayed in Norwich. Coffee and cake were nice. The Pizza Express is a lovely restaurant with friendly staff.

An awful modern shed in the midst of lovely old buildings. How could they build it there. Glass and steel girders and a temporary look about it. Hopefully is is temporary
