  1. Jarrold's flagship beauty department

Good grief, if you like a good browse at all the latest ranges from the spectrum of beauty brands out there then the newly remodelled ground floor beauty hall should be your number one destination in Norwich. The range of products is vast and all laid out in an open way. MAC, Chanel, Lancôme, Clarins, Benefit, Clinique, YSL... in fact far too many to mention. Don't forget there is a men's grooming section too.

  1. The Retreat and in-store beauty and pamper services

    Even if you're a Jarrold's regular you probably haven't heard of The Retreat, it has to be the best kept secret in Norwich! From the beauty hall you descend into the level below where all is calm and quiet, completely sound-proofed from the hubbub of the shopping going on above. You can enjoy a whole range of services from massages, reflexology, facials, hot stone sessions, spray tans as well as in store beauty and pampering, makeovers, nails, eyebrow threading and more. Imagine popping down for a massage after a hectic morning in the city or booking your appointment and breezing in for some pamper time.

    Wow, seriously? That's 193 years of hard work and experience going into providing the best service and selecting each and every item that you find on the shelves. Sitting in the heart of Norwich on London Street with over 50 departments spread over 5 floors Jarrold offers a pretty unrivalled mix of everything from traditional favourites to modern must-haves. Something for every taste and pocket

  1. Diverse women's fashion

    Well, there is just about everything going on here so don't be tricked into thinking “oh there wont be anything here for me”. There really is a vast array of brands from very pocket friendly basics to top dollar splurges and everything in between. It can be quite daunting trying to navigate your way round a large clothing department so you can call upon the services of a personal shopper, oh yes. With more brands than you can shake a stick at there will certainly a great choice of whatever you're looking for... Ted Baker, Orla Kiely, L K Bennett, Joules, Barbour, Vero Moda, White stuff, Lulu Guinness but to name a few. The department was so tidy and spacious, quite refreshing for women's clothes shopping it has to be said.

  1. Jo Malone

The smellsemanatingg from the Jo Malone section were heavenly. With the focus of this British brand being very much on the beautiful presentation of their bespoke scents the whole area was immaculate and alluring. Whether buying for yourself or a special someone else you will be guaranteed to take home a truly beautiful gift. Ever had an arm massage? If you've not already tried it then you're missing out.

  1. Book department

    A well stocked book department is a beautiful thing, but wait, there's more. As well as a large section of local books and ordering in anything which is not on the shelves they even have a Jarrold book club. Now we're talking.

  2. Stationery

    A whole stationery shop is found a couple of doors down. A whole shop. I'll leave that thought with you.

  3. Three restaurants and a deli

    Feeling hungry or in need of refreshment? With plenty of choice you will find something to refuel you. The deli is found on the basement level and stocks a wide range of Norfolk and Suffolk produce amongst everything you could hope to find. As well as an assortment of pre-assembled hampers you can also tailor make your own.

  4. Shop online & collect in store

  5. Not in Norfolk? Shop at Jarrold online and get it delivered to your door. Found what you want online? You can order online and collect in-store. It's a doddle.

    1. Love Jarrolds! My Grandma used to take me into the city by bus when I was little and I always insisted on going there first, I loved the book department!

      I had no idea about the Retreat!

      I'm back home in Norfolk in 3 weeks so will be sure to pop in to the store, it's definitely a place I associate with being home :)
