The Old Skating Rink Gallery 34-36 Bethel Street Norwich NR2 1NR

Housed in a former skating rink, this barn-like place is one of Norwich’s most distinctive shops, offering all manner of Eastern stuff, from rugs and kilims to Buddha statues and intricately carved Burmese wall panels, Thai jewellery and Indian paintings. The owners make regular trips out east to source the stuff and, much to their credit, they do their best to patronise small, independent craftsmen and women.
