The Norwich Postcode NR8 is Great

Norwich, NR8 is a brilliant postcode to have, says the Royal Mail!

A survey conducted by the Royal Mail revealed that NR8 was voted one of the most desirable postcodes in England to have.

Back in 2015, the Royal Mail commissioned the Centre or Economics and Business Research to work out what were the UK’s top locations, based on a checklist of key work-life factors.

This checklist had to include good schools, good employers, good employment prospects, low crime levels, green spaces, average commuting times and affordable housing. Based on all these points Taverham was placed in the top five, as one of the best places to live in England.

If you’re not sure what areas the NR8 postcode covers, here you go:

Thorpe Marriott

Take a drive through any of the NR8 locations on a sunny day, and you’ll see cows, horses, plenty of green spaces and the magnificent river Wensum which families flock to with their picnics.
This postcode is spoilt rotten with two great gold clubs, Wensum Valley Golf and Country club as well as Costessey Park Golf Club, so if you’re an aspiring Tiger Woods, then NR8 is perfect for you.

After a day of golf, you’ll want refreshments, and the NR8 postcode offers some great places where you can grab a drink and something to eat.
