Discover East Anglia

East Anglia is a beautifully preserved, Anglo-Saxon-era region, encompassing six different counties and known for its stunning scenery, from rolling countryside to unspoilt coastline and enthralling cities.

There are plenty of superb attractions to enjoy, from theme parks, to zoos, to stately homes and museums. The seaside resorts of Clacton and Southend in Essex and Lowestoft in Suffolk are a great setting for the perfect family getaway. Norfolk is a picturesque beach-lover’s haven, with miles of sand dunes to admire. You can also be closer to nature, observing wildlife in the protected wetlands of the Norfolk Broads. Then there is Cambridgeshire, an architectural marvel, with stunning buildings like King’s College Chapel to absorb and appreciate. It is also home to the UK’s best aviation museum.
