  • Built to replace the old library which burned down, the Forum is a fantastic, multi-purpose venue. Housing the City Library, it is also home to the local BBC. The Fusion cinema is quite remarkable - t...  more »
  • Not only a library and the county records but a meeting place and artistic venue with, at the appropriate time of year, an ice rink as well 
  • Stunning if appreciate modern architecture. Very busy food outlets which result in probable queues in busy periods and associated prices (not the cheapest in town)

  • Nice place to meet with a nice bar, restaurant and library to hand. It's a modern, light and airy public space which sometimes holds art exhibitions.
  • Quite an impressive building that houses the BBC East news studios, a lending library, a venue for hire, a small gift shop, large coffee shop and a Pizza Express restaurant. It's in stark contrast to the Saint Peter Mancroft church opposite. The ground floor occasionally hosts an exhibition but most of the time is underused in such a grand city centre building. Outside is a spacious plaza, where the coffee shop spills out onto. The paving and steps is popular with skateboarders and young people meeting up with their friends, this area too is host to occasional events during the year but nothing permanent. Overall though, I wish more was done to make use of this building.
  • Brilliant library, archive, and selection of eateries. Big enough to not feel cluttered. Parking is good value if you don't know the free spaces in the city.
  • One of the UK's most popular libraries, there is always something interesting going on here.
  • I love this place every time I take my 3 year old here. There's constantly something amazing happening and lots of life and things going on. The library itself is wonderful too.
