The East Anglia region

East Anglia is a region of eastern England, named after one of the ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, which was named after the homeland of the Angles, Angeln in northern Germany. The kingdom consisted of Norfolk and Suffolk but the region's boundaries are vague. It includes the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, with part or all of the pre-April 1, 1974 Cambridgeshire. Some people include Essex—sometimes only the northern part—and a small part of southern Lincolnshire bordering The Wash. Some of the area is characterised by its flatness, consisting of fenland and reclaimed marshland, though much of Suffolk and parts of Norfolk are gently rolling hills. East Anglia forms part of the East of England administrative region.

Farming and horticulture have proven very successful in this fertile country. The landscape has been heavily influenced by Dutch technology, from the influx of clay pantiles to the draining of the fens. It has a wide range of small-scale holiday destinations ranging from traditional coastal resorts, through historic towns such as Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge, Ely and King's Lynn to the modern holiday villas of Centre Parcs set in Thetford Forest. The Royal Air Force constructed many airfields during World War II and a few of these remain in use. One, near Norwich, has become Norwich International Airport, a civilian airfield to serve the city.

The Norfolk and Suffolk Broadsform a network of waterways between Norwich and the coast and are popular for recreational boating. A recent bid to have them declared a National park failed, as it would have meant conservation becoming more important than navigation rights.


Home to the famous University, carols in King's College Chapel and punting on the river Cam. Cambridge is a compact cosmopolitan city with outstanding architecture old and new. The beauty of its ancient centre is preserved with its walkable medieval streets, college courts, gardens and bridges.

Cambridge is a delight to visit in any season: relax in its many pubs, restaurants and cafes whilst exploring the independent shops around the historic market place. There are brand new shopping areas too, with all the high street favourites that you would expect.

Be inspired by the museums and art galleries; spot the stars of the future at a student theatrical production, or see a show at the Arts Theatre. Film, live music of all kinds, poetry readings, public lectures - enter into the intellectual life of the students while you are here.

There’s too much to see in a day – join a guided walking tour of Cambridge to make the most of your time, better still stay a few nights and explore the market towns and country houses around Cambridge.

"Somewhere to stay but not great"

First negative was that the apartment was in the basement, not something we expected or were advised of when booking. The whole apartment was small and oddly shaped. Who are these architects. Do th… More

Sorry to hear of your disappointment.These comments are surprising especially after I spoke to one of the guests, during their stay, who expressed nothing but satisfaction about the apartment.The apartment is EXACTLY as described on our website,including all room sizes and photos of all areas.We do not seek to hide that the apartment is in a basement.There is an outside terrace -where else would the apartment be situated?All bedrooms/living room and ensuite have natural light.The kitchen again is as described and photographed and is big enough to have a large fridge freezer,oven,dishwasher, washer dryer and ample storage space,work tops.The extractor fan is linked to an outside vent. The alarm in the kitchen is a heat alarm ,so is not smoke sensitive.The alarm in the hallway is a smoke alarm but I think most guests would be more upset if a smoke alarm wasn't reacting to smoke?There is a temperature control on the toaster.Our respectful suggestion would have been to turn that control down instead of (3 times....) burning their toast.This would have negated the need for the ensuing acrobatics that followed?
