Norwich is the the capital of Norfolk and the childhood home of Alan Partridge. Alan feels a great deal of affection for the city, frequently making it out to be more dynamic and exciting than it actually is, and chooses to live close to it throughout his life. The majority of his radio jobs have been here, and Alan attended East Anglia Polytechnic in the town. Alan also admires the surrounding Norfolk countryside, and enjoys rambling from Norfolk to Swaffham.
