The region’s prime classical music festival takes place every June.
Extraordinarily pretty, genteel seaside town that is perfect for walking and bathing – with the added incentive of the most inventive Under the Pier Show in the country.
4 Norwich Market
This open-air market is the region’s biggest and best for everything from whelks to wellies.

Wide bay holding Norfolk’s finest beach – acres of golden sand set against hilly, pine-dusted dunes.
Isolated Cambridgeshire town, with a true fenland flavour and a magnificent cathedral.
With some of the finest late medieval architecture in Europe, Cambridge is a must-see, its compact centre graced by dignified old colleges and their neatly manicured quadrangles.
