It was the decade that brought us flip phones, massive shopping malls and The Strokes, but what can you remember about Norwich in the 00s?

Archant community content curator, Kate Wolstenholme, has been rummaging through the archives to bring you some familiar sights from the decade.

It was the decade when the Queen was in town to open the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, Norwich City returned to the Premier League under Nigel Worthington and then millennium bug was feared.

In Norwich, the city was having a makeover with the Forum, Chapelfield, new look Norwich Market and the new bus station all being built in the decade.

The new bus station opens in Norwich.
