I will be, it’s a long way for me and I live west side of London so can’t imagine what it’s like coming from Bristol.

I have had to go there a lot with work in the last year and I do quite like it and the people I was working for .But, how my heart would sink everytime I hit the road and saw a sign saying London 109 miles, knowing how far I was on the wrong side of the big smoke. :(

They can meet up with 10 from Norwich - that's 120 toes and 120 fingers.

Used to work for Norwich Union and always had a good night out whenever visiting/working up there. Seemed to spend a lot of  time in Murderers I seem to remember.

Hi Taunton am based up here now. 

Decent away day, friendly drinking but you have to know where to go as its sprawled out a bit

What's you agenda, all day drinking, clubbing, lap dancing?!! (I'm not offering!)

There's a wetherspoons not far from ground and train station (2 mins walk) with a large multistorey car park next to train station.

I would recommend the coach and horses turn right out of train station, mixed home and away but v friendly good beer and near where away coaches stop. I would avoid complete angler not a bad pub typical police outside with cameras sort of thing.

Nightclubs are based on prince of wales road drinkers here are 18-25 mostly nightclubs and late night trouble spot 

Tombland area, cobbled street type area, is my choice mixed pubs mostly historic slightly older crowd, has a spoons and further along in Magdalene street is curry house area.

For oldies an independent pub "the fat cat" is worth a look but no food or music, real ale place

Any more info let i know

If going by train, check it out. Last time I looked it was bus and tube from Liverpool Street, and going via Kings X and Ely was the recommended route.

Trains running straight through now London liverpool st direct to naarwich

Some naughty footy types get the tube to Stratford straight through gates on tube ticket and jump on 321 to Ipswich with no guard on and get free travel then just pay from Ipswich to norwich. Can't do this on return journey. 

But this is obviously fraud and not encouraged.

Not according to Trainline as it stands they are not. Liverpool street to Cambridge then to Norwich, or bus to Witham then train to Norwich. Maybe just needs updating if it has changed recently?

Is that going and coming back the same day?

No there’s only 1 flight each way a day. We’re going Friday til Sunday.

Fair play, great way to travel to an away game, I usually let the train take the strain nowadays as getting stuck in traffic does my head in

Watching Norwich v Brum...........very entertaining game. Having seen Norwich 3  times this season, they play excellent football and we will do very well to get anything up there. If we don't win the league, here's hoping, then probably Norwich will, as they play with style and commitment.

it's postponements / cancellations that often lead to the most memorable random trips! One of the best piss-ups i've had in my youth was when an evening cup replay at Luton got cancelled just as we were pulling into the town - quick show of hands and the coach decided to head to a brilliant country pub where we proceeded to get smashed and sing city songs long into the night. The locals were confused and surprised :D

I saw what was possibly the world`s worst street entertainer in Norwich. It was a bloke with a cassette player banging out Glenn Miller and stuff like that and he had a glove puppet that he moved in time to the music and that was it. You could see the passers-by cringing at how bad it was.

Spoke to a conductor at station today

Trains are running too and from Liverpool street to norwich on Saturdays so a day return should see you through no problems (currently)

If you coming back Sunday get the London bound liverpoo l st train and if there are rail works a bus replacement service takes you to London

So as it stands Saturdays ok Sundays allow an hour's drinking time for connections to Paddington etc

I can’t remember the time I drove to a HOME game. Usually get the train in from Swindle so I can have a few beers 🍺 

Next away game is Sheffield United for me

Other side of Norwich mind, you'll definitely need a taxi to get to the ground/centre.

I think he's still there, bit of a cult hero in them parts I think 🤣. Haven't been to Norwich for a few years now, but used to live there about 10 years ago. He's so bad he's good...
