1. St Augustines Street 

This street is a mini version of the Norwich Lanes and is bustling with independent shops and cafes, with owners that are not afraid of a pop of colour.

This includes new café Hashery with its giant pink and orange sign and yellow and brown florist Jipola.

2. Elm Hill 

It is no surprise that postcard-perfect Elm Hill is a popular choice for film crews, with the most recent project Netflix Christmas film Jingle Jangle.

It feels like stepping back in time as you walk down the cobbled street and there are pastel-coloured houses along the way. 

It was also recently named one of the most beautiful streets in the world.
