Norwich is sometimes portrayed in the UK media as a place which is remote, unsophisticated, gauche, and out-of-step with national trends (see Alan Partridge, who once described Norwich as "the Provence of Great Britain"). This is perhaps primarily due to its geographical isolation, and an identification of Norwich as the epitome of Norfolk, a largely rural county.

Norwich was the second city of England (after London) for several centuries before industrialisation, which came late to Norwich due to its isolation.

Norwich also has a long history of political radicalism and is by no means a conservative city. With 13 seats, Green Party councillors make up the official opposition on Norwich City Council. The largest number of seats, however, is held by the Labour Party with 15. The Liberal Democrats are in third place with 6. The Conservative Party is currently in fourth place with 5 councillors.

In November 2006, the city was voted the greenest in the UK. There is currently an initiative taking place to make it a transition town. Norwich has recently been the scene of open discussions in public spaces, known as 'meet in the street', that cover social and political issues.

According to the 2001 census, 27.8% of respondents in Norwich stated that they were of "no religion", the highest percentage in England.

There are rail links from Norwich to Peterborough and London, and direct services to Cambridge were added in 2004. It is a commuter city, with services running on the train route between Norwich and London. Travelling by train to London from Norwich, travellers arrive at Liverpool Street Station in the heart of the 'City of London', the central financial district.

A large proportion of the population of Norwich are users of the Internet. A recent article has suggested that, compared with other UK cities, it is top of the league for the percentage of population who use the popular Internet auction site eBay. The city has also unveiled the biggest free Wi-Fi network in the UK, which opened in July 2006.

In August 2007, Norwich was shortlisted as one of nine finalists in its population group for the International Awards for Liveable Communities LivCom Awards. The city eventually won a silver award in the "small city category".

Norwich and the countryside have a huge amount of events to take you through the whole year, from the Dragon Festival in January through to the Ice Sculpture Trail in December. Events range from international festival acts to outdoor theatre and messing about on the Broads. Music, theatre, dance, charity races, family weekends, craft fairs, Shakespeare, beer festivals, summer bandstand concerts, civic ceremonies, cathedral services, fireworks, heritage, food, gardens and antiques - it's all going on in Norwich!

Norwich was the eighth most prosperous shopping destination in the UK in 2006. Norwich has an ancient market place, established by the Normans between 1071 and 1074, which today is the largest six-days-a-week open-air market in England. The market has recently been downsized and undergone redevelopment, and the new market stalls have proved controversial. With 20% less floorspace than the original stalls, higher rental and other charges and inadequate rainwater handling, they have been unpopular with many stallholders and customers alike. Indeed, the local Norwich Evening News characterises Norwich Market as an ongoing conflict between the market traders and Norwich City Council, which operates the market.

The Mall Norwich (Castle Mall until 2007), a shopping mall designed by local practice Lambert, Scott & Innes and opened in 1993, presents an ingenious solution to the problem of sensitively accommodating new retail space in a historic city-centre environment - the building is largely concealed underground and built into the side of a hill, with a public park created on its roof in the area south of the Castle.

The new Chapelfield shopping mall has been built on the site where the Caleys (later Rowntree Mackintosh and Nestlé) chocolate factory once stood. Chapelfield opened in September 2005, featuring House of Fraser as its flagship department store. Detractors have criticised Chapelfield as unnecessary and damaging to local businesses. Its presence has prompted smaller retailers to band together to promote the virtues of independent shops. Despite this, in August 2006, it was reported by the Javelin Group that Norwich was one of the top five retail destinations in the UK, and, in October 2006, the city centre was voted the best in the UK, in a shopping satisfaction survey run by Goldfish Credit Card.

To the North of the city centre is the Anglia Square shopping centre. The centre and the surrounding area is shortly to be redeveloped. Demolition work was to have commenced in 2010. However, in February 2009, it was announced that, due to the economic climate, plans for the area have been delayed and developers are now unable to say when work will finally get underway. Unlike its predecessor, the new scheme will comprise a mixture of shops and housing, unlike the original which consisted of offices, shops and a cinema.
