Norwich (pronounced variously "Norritch", "Norridge") is a city in East Anglia, in Eastern England, and the regional administrative centre and county town of Norfolk.
In effect the City expands a long way beyond its actual borough boundary, with large suburban areas on most sides, particularly Thorpe St. Andrew on the eastern side. The Parliamentary seats cross over into adjacent local government districts. The population for the Norwich Urban sub-area was 174,047 in 2001. It is the 27th largest settlement in England using this measure. However, the population for the whole built-up area was 194,839 in 2001 (census figures), up 5.1% from the 1991 figure of 185,420. It is the 32nd-largest urban area in England.
