What is the Golden Triangle?

May, 2022

In Norwich, the Golden Triangle has long been considered one of the most desirable neighbourhoods. The area forms a wedge-shaped area in the southwest of Norwich (NR2). How does this area remain so desirable and why do properties keep their value? Below we examine a few reasons why. 

It is no secret that those contemplating or living in the city know about this golden triangle's ideal location. Although there has been controversy over the lines along which the gold spot of real estate lies, no one can deny that its popularity is well-deserved. 

Located between Earlham Road and Newmarket Road, this area is perfect for professionals, students, and families. A variety of spacious, Victorian terrace houses are located within walking distance of the University of East Anglia, the train station, and the city centre, making it a popular area among commuters and students alike. 


There is an extensive bus network throughout Norwich, so if walking is not your thing, the area is well connected to public transportation. Luxury houses are available in Newmarket and Lime Tree Road, which command high prices and are highly desirable. 

While living in the city, you can find serenity in the Plantation Garden and Heigham Park, a pocket of calm amid the daily bustle. During the summer, these parks provide an abundance of activities for all the family including a bowls club, cherished play area, grass tennis courts and a thriving wildlife ecosystem.

Norfolk offers great state and independent schools for students of all ages, as well as some of the best education available.
