Norwich, in the United Kingdom, is generally considered quite safe at night. There's a low level of crime and well-lit streets with frequent foot traffic due to the large student population.

The city center with its bars and clubs can get noisy and crowded during weekends, but is monitored by patrolling police officers. Residential areas are mostly quiet and peaceful.

Norwich is known for being a safe city. I think you need your whits about you when in any city in the UK, but crime rates are relatively low here and I tend to feel safe walking on my own (even in the dark).

It is very safe however you always have to be aware of your surroundings and what part of Norwich you are in. Some are aot safer than others I would always say stay on the main routes. The city has a good night life but just be careful.
