East of England
To visit the East of England is to take a journey back through time. Norfolk boasts the unmissable city of Norwich, with its awe-inspiring cathedral and Norman castle, as well as a lively cultural life. The Broads National Park, straddling Suffolk and Norfolk is a magical network of waterways, unique and beautiful, while Suffolk is peppered with towns and villages which ooze charm. Bury St Edmunds, for example, with its glorious abbey and verdant gardens, or the sublime coastal villages of Southwold, Aldeburgh and Orford.
Further South, Essex is steeped in Roman history, with Colchester being the first capital of Roman Britain. Ideal for a break that takes in London, it also has a lively coastline, from the colourful beach huts at Brightlingsea to the longest iron pleasure pier in the world at Southend on Sea.
