M.A.C is a favourite cosmetic brand, though these days I hardly wear make-up. This area is part of Jarrolds – widely regarded as the flagship independent Store in Norwich and twice winner of the UK’s Independent Department Store of the Year.
If you want to encounter the local family shopping experience then visit Jarrold’s. This department store can be argued to be the first and foremost store of Norwich. It is a family run store since 1823 and offers a unique and contemporary shopping experience, but still manages to keep its sense of heritage.
Whenever I walk past it on London St, I always look up to admire this red brick bit. Isn’t it beautiful?

The proverbial red telephone box. I feel sad that they’re getting replaced by silver monstrosities. I hope someone who is in a position to do it makes certain that these phone booths don’t go out of fashion. I simply love them!

This is just one of the many flowers that adorn the outside area of the Adam & Eve. I was attracted to its daintiness. What do you think?

On a bright summer day, it’s lovely to sit outside the pub and enjoy a cool drink. There are flowers everywhere you look, which makes the outdoors really pretty and attractive. I wonder why restaurants don’t make their outside sitting as pretty.

Someone once asked me if the Adam & Eve had low ceilings. I said I didn’t know at the time because I didn’t go to pubs because of the smoke. When the ban was implemented, I went to find out. And so the answer is yes. Look at the lovely paneling.
I also ordered lemonade to quench my thirst (and help with the dizziness), and this time I knew exactly what I was getting. When I first visited Norwich in 2003, I would order lemonade and get Sprite or Seven-Up. I thought they were just random mistakes or some kind of miscommunication. Later I found out that lemonade over here didn’t mean the fruit! If you want that, you’d have to say ‘cloudy’ lemonade.
