Norwich is a major city in East Anglia and historically one of the most important commercial and cultural centres in England outside of London. Situated by the River Wensum, Norwich is the administrative centre and county town of Norfolk. The city was established as the capital of East Anglia by Roman occupiers, while many of its most impressive buildings, including Norwich Cathedral, were erected after the Norman Conquest in the 11th century. During the medieval era and up until the industrial revolution, Norwich was among the top few biggest and most important cities in England. Today it remains a city of great importance to Norfolk and to the south-east of England, with a thriving tourist trade and many large and small businesses operating in the area.
