Did you know?
Norwich City FC was originally nicknamed “The Citizens", but this changed to “The Canaries"in 1907. Norwich had long been known for canary breeding, but Journalists began to call the team “The Canaries"after an FA Cup tie with West Bromwich Albion, who were nicknamed “The Throstles"after another type of bird. The match was thus coined a ‘bird-singing contest’ by the media. Norwich City began to play in yellow and green the following season and a canary emblem was adopted in 1922.
Norwich is steeped in atmosphere and peppered with unique architectural treasures. The historic city of Norwich is dominated by its magnificent Norman cathedral, boasting the largest cloisters in England, the second tallest spire in the country and an amazing 1,200 carved stone roof bosses – one of the greatest art treasures of medieval Europe. Norwich is proud of its past and present status. Its ancient buildings and city wall remains make it the most complete medieval city in Britain. In medieval times Norwich was one of the greatest cities in England, and today, as East Anglia’s capital city, it still is – offering a rare blend of historic interest and modern sophistication.
