East of England

These coastal counties boast some 500 miles of beautiful coast winding their way through Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridgeshire. The region is pure Constable Country, there’s nowhere quite like it, probably why The Queen celebrates Christmas in her Norfolk residence, and it’s become the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s family home. More comically – it’s where the legendary Alan Partridge had his radio show!

It’s dotted with fabulously atmospheric towns and villages as well as the flats of the Norfolk Broads (as referenced by David Bowie’s Life on Mars!), Thetford Forest and over 17 spectacular castles. A wonderful tourist destination, drawing over 3 million visitors a year, as well as being home to Cambridge University, one of the world’s top centres of learning. Famed for its abundance of local produce from crabs, to fish, cheese and more, it’s one of the UK’s hottest culinary destinations with pubs, restaurants and hotels offering fantastic food and drink options as well as private rooms for all manner of events from weddings to parties and celebrations.
