Put the East of England at the top of your "must visit" places in 2018

The East of England has a diverse mixture of vibrant cities, individual towns and villages, beautiful countryside and idyllic seaside - and all within easy reach no matter where you are travelling from. Based around the ancient kingdom of East Anglia, the area is made up of the six counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex to form the well-known ‘hump' on England's eastern side. Directly to the north of London, the region has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions.


Suffolk: a place you can unwind in. Situated on the east coast of England, Suffolk is a county filled with natural beauty, bordered by 50 miles of glorious coastline and topped with breathtaking skies. Its charming villages and medieval towns draw in artists and writers, while its bounty of great produce and restaurants make it a special spot for foodies. Here in Suffolk you can visit the Home of Horseracing, explore Constable Country, experience maritime life in Ipswich, immerse yourself in history in Bury St Edmunds, or simply spend long, lazy days by the sea. The fabulous attractions and great days out in Suffolk mean you can do as much as you want, or as little. Sometimes, in a place this rich and beautiful, just being is pleasure enough.
