A raft of new shops and cafes have opened in Norwich in recent weeks.
This means that slowly but surely, the empty holes left in the high street by the pandemic are being filled.
Here are all the new places and faces to look out for when out and about in the Fine City.
The owners of Boom Battle Bar are expanding their Castle Quarter attractions, opening Putt Noodle in the former New Look store.
The crazy golf site will have three nine-hole courses.
One of the courses has an Asia theme, featuring a Cambodian bamboo jungle and the Great Wall of China. There will be a menu of Asian-inspired dishes and a full bar.
H&M has opened a new home store in the old Game location in Chantry Place.

The Real Greek is located in the old Giraffe restaurant at Chantry Place.
Serving authentic Greek meze, the restaurant aims to give customers a "contemporary Aegean experience".

It opened in the place of the Old Cobblers juice bar.
