The East Anglia region
East Anglia boasts the driest weather in the UK. The whole area was home to the Angles before the arrival of the Romans some 2066 years ago. It was the largest and most developed area of civilisation for many years to come, with the Romans making their capital in the area. In medieval times, the area was home to a thriving wool trade and other important industries as well as farming. Some of the towns, such as Lavenham and Clare, became very prosperous and managed to hang onto their importance and grandeur even until now. Whereas Dunwich, the largest port in the world at one point, all but disappeared into the sea. Southwold and Aldeburgh expanded and are now sophisticated & cosmopolitan seaside towns, attracting thousands of visitors each year. The east Suffolk coastline is considered one of the best in the UK and there are numerous areas of designated interest or outstanding beauty as well as lots of activities and tourist attractions.
As East Anglia is a major tourist destination, the area hosts lots of attractions too numerous to list here. They range from large 'disney' style theme parks to nature walks and local museums. Do check out google for websites that list these.
