Guide to Getting TEFL Certified in Norwich
Whether you live in Norwich, or are currently overseas or living elsewhere in the UK you might want to consider taking a TEFL certification in this city. Norwich is a city located in the East of England and is the perfect destination to take a TEFL course and a good alternative to places like getting tefl certifications in London, Oxford ord Cambridge. Norwich is only a few hours away from London by train and used to be known as the city with as many Churches as Sundays in each year, and as many pubs as there are days. That’s quite a title to hold. And yet, despite this, Norwich still conjures up images of a boring, sleepy city, where the inhabitants are cooped up and never leave.
Norwich holds a quaint charm about it; it is city with an impressive legacy, heavily influenced by the arts. For those who are interested in the past there are a number of landmarks that are traditionally beautiful. There are the two Cathedrals – one Anglican, one Catholic – both with beautiful architecture and religious history. Services are held in these magnificent buildings for those who wish to experience the Cathedrals in their element; for the non believers there are gardens and tours available. As well as the Cathedrals Norwich also boasts a castle, placed on top of a hill overlooking the city. Although its outside is impressive, the museum and art gallery located inside are even more so. These exhibitions cover a wide range of history, going back to the Anglo-Saxons; perfect for those wishing to learn a little more about the city.
However, for those visitors less inclined to revelling in the past, Norwich is more than just a collection of antiques. There are the Norwich Lanes, an eclectic selection of cafes, bars and shops. The cobbled pavements add to the rustic aura you find yourself in whilst wandering around. The vintage shops (such as Prim and Goldfinches) are perfect if looking for a unique gift for someone or if you need a style overhaul. Frank’s Bar is a firm favourite with the locals as is The Bicycle Shop – both hosting not only delicious food but a number of events including 80s film showings and music nights.
Moving through the Lanes you will, at some point, come across Norwich market. This cannot be easily overlooked; taking over the entirety of Gentlemans Walk, this market is covered in multicoloured tops and is the largest weekly open market in the country. The list is endless of what this market has to offer; from grocery shopping to bookstalls, from hog roasts to oysters, from army suppliers to watch makers. No, Norwich is not the boring city it is made out to be. It is full of life and vigour and immerses itself totally in the art scene. However, I concede that one stereotype may be kept about this beautiful city; the people who live here find it very difficult to tear themselves away.

Where to Stay
There is a great range of accommodation in Norwich and the surrounding area for all budgets. You can, for example, enjoy luxury self catering cottages in Norfolk for very reasonable rates. One such example is the Garden Cottage in Wellingham, which is located within the grounds of a beautiful farm. A short walk through fields abounding in roses will lead you to a 13th Century church, which appears to have been unaffected by the passage of time. The cottage itself has original features, four poster beds and rooms that open onto stunning countryside views. There are so many other examples, but if you go with certain respected companies you will find great amenities such as swimming pools and fishing lakes that are included as part of the package. Look out for cottages in places such as Cromer, Blackeney and Brancaster. These are just a few of the special locations in which to stay in this beautiful and sleepy county when studying here.
