“It is what it is”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

One of the more familiar sites of the city architecturally. But it is a train station - it is what it is. Always find it clean... and the staff have the patience of a saint at times.

“Day Trip to London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

WE went to london this week by train, The train however was delayed by some network problems so we had a short wait, whilst waiting and just looking around the station (i'v been here many times in 50+ years) i was surprised at just how well this old station looks and runs, the staff are very helpful and concedering the amount of flack they were getting for something thats not there fault very pro active in trying to sort out the situation. Obviously the is not a "Attraction" in its own right (for some) it is the gateway into the Norwich area and personally i think a great asset

“The hub for transport for Norfolk - not really an attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013

Norwich train station is your average train station, with some nice architecture outside to see and a few shops inside, all a bit on the pricy side. The toilets are located behind the barriers but if you are here to travel or to quickly pick someone up this shouldn't be a problem. The staff seem friendly enough but i won't call it an attraction to come and see; much better to spend your time seeing the cathedrals or the norwich city centre.

“Outside Beautiful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Inside clean enough but you need to ask staff to go through to the toliets if you don't have a ticket, do this as I think the barriers are a pain. The coffee shops are nice enough but all multi-nationals so the same as you get everywhere. I saw they now offer bicycle hire which could be handy on another occassion.
