Working with a regional business, Visit East of England offers a unique real-time booking system that ensures more of the value of any visit goes to the venue you are staying at.

We charge 10% commission on any booking, on average half that of a global Online Travel Agent. The commission stays in the local economy and is used to promote the East of England. Our service offers an ethical and transparent business approach.

Where to stay

When is the best time to come?

The East of England has one of the best overall climates in the country, rarely experiences extreme weather, and can be enjoyed year-round. The coast and countryside changes with the seasons, and many of the visitor attractions are open all year.

On average the hottest month is July and the coldest January and February. Rainfall on average falls fairly evenly throughout the year.

It is possible to see elements of all seasons in one day, as with the rest of England, so it is advisable to check the forecast before arriving to be sure of bringing the appropriate clothing.

Winter is the coolest season and the days at their shortest, but the wildlife is at its best now, particularly on the coast.

From March to May the average daytime temperatures are between 9 and 16 degrees.  From June to August the average daytime temperatures are between 18 and 22 degrees.

If you want to avoid the peak visitor summer season, the weather is still good throughout the Autumn and the days are still long, particularly in September.
