Made up of beautiful countryside, from the Norfolk Broads and Thetford Forest, picturesque villages and market towns, the East of England is a fantastic holiday destination. With over 500 miles of sandy coastline, the region is one of the most popular in Britain for a beach holiday.

Stuck for things to do? Visit a historic home, discover Britain’s largest collection of Cathedrals, go shopping in Norwich, or check out the historic colleges within Cambridge University. Enjoy some of the most pristine gardens of England before moving onto the ruins of a Norman castle.

Heritage sites include Sandringham, the Queen’s private country house, Melford Hall, inspiration for much of Beatrix Potter’s work, and Kentwell Hall, one of Suffolk’s stately homes with a twist.

Let’s not forget Lincolnshire, home to Skegness, a well loved, traditional British seaside town, a great family day out. Lincoln itself is a beautiful, historic city, with a magnificent cathedral, and one of Britain’s greatest streets, Steep Hill.

Easily accessible from London, the East of England can offer great days out, or a whole week packed with fun.
