The East Anglia region
East Anglia is a region of eastern England. Much of the area is characterised by its flatness, partly consisting of fenland and reclaimed marshland, although much of Suffolk and Norfolk is gently rolling hills.
Suffolk contains some wonderful historic sites and buildings including the dramatic castles at Framlingham and the famous ship burial of an Anglo Saxon warrior king and his most treasured possessions at Sutton Hoo.
The climate ranges from temperatures of 5–10 degrees Celsius in the winter to 20–25 degrees Celsius in the summer, although the temperatures have been known to reach 35 degrees Celsius in recent years. The total hours of sunshine tends to be higher towards the coastal areas.

Take a stroll around the famous Abbey Gardens of St Edmund or watch a show at the Theatre Royal, recently refurbished, one of the most beautiful, intimate and historic theatres in the world.
