East Anglia

Your basket is empty


East Anglia – the fenlands and farmlands of Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex – is home to the Queen’s estate at Sandringham, beautiful Holkham beach, the waterways of the Norfolk Broads and the cities of Cambridge and Colchester. This is a region of sand dunes, unspoilt villages, wide-open skies and ever-present water.


Flatford Mill
This is Constable country, so don’t miss a trip to the painter's birthplace at Flatford Mill in the village of East Bergholt, where there's also a lock and barge dock. Earn your lunch by rowing along the River Stour with a picnic and a bottle of chilled white wine – there's a boating station in Dedham. Trawl for antiques in pretty Dedham, where you can stroll along the river – just pick up a walking map.

Newmarket is the home of horse racing, so get into the stirrups with a day at the races, a visit the National Stud or the National Horseracing Museum. It’s also possible to visit training yards, gallops and bloodstock sales to watch Britain’s most expensive hooves go under the hammer.

Historic cities
Bursting with medieval history, Norwich boasts a lively market square and a jumble of little cobbled streets packed with antique and craft shops. Delve into the rich Roman history of Colchester and head to Harwich to discover its maritime history. Pop to Ely to see its stunning cathedral and take a trip to the famous abbey at Bury St Edmunds.

Educate yourself about the churches, cloisters and colleges of Cambridge on a city tour, or give your brain a rest and go punting or picnicking on the river Cam instead. Bursting with museums and fabulous architecture, a leisurely stroll is the best way to explore the cobbled courts, bridges and courtyards. Don’t forget to check out the bustling arts and craft markets and shopping centres for a retail treat.

The Broads
Inland waterways don’t come much more beautiful than the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads. Britain’s biggest wetland is home to rare birds, plants and creatures that thrive in the marshy land and woods. Take a relaxing boat trip through the Broads to experience the eclectic wildlife from the waterways.
