From St Albans, with its Roman remains, to Cambridge, the home of one of England 's most famous universities, East Anglia is full of wonderful churches, cathedrals and stately homes. Combined with the amusement parks, cross country walks and watersports, and you'll find something of interest for all ages.
East of England countryside is predominately a low lying and open area, containing a diversity of gentle landscapes including the Fens. The East Anglia coast covers 250 miles from The Wash to the wide expanse of the River Thames. Unspoilt beaches, crumbling cliffs, estuaries, shingle spits and Britain's best mudflats and saltmarshes - the Broads of Norfolk and Suffolk are included in a National Park.
Norfolk boasts wonderful coast line, world-famous birdwatching, the stark beauty of the Fens and Sandringham, the famous Royal country retreat set in 60 acres of beautiful gardens and lakes. Norwich is the most complete medieval city in Britain, with its cathedral, castle, lively cultural scene and great shopping.
Visit Cambridge, the famous University city, noted for its historic colleges, specialist museums and bookshops. Have a go punting on the River Cam - it's harder than it looks! Also visit Ely Cathedral which dominates The Fens, one of six spectacular cathedrals to be found in the Cambridgeshire area.
