Small towns, villages, and capitals dot the landscape and are full of history to see and appreciate. Rivers and marshland also stretch through the popular tourist and rural regions alike.
Three of the most popular areas to visit East of England are:
Norfolk: If you’re visiting Norfolk, you’re going for the Broads - a historic and scenic area of rivers, lakes and marshes. One of the most popular activities is renting a boat and floating down the many rivers, stopping on an impromptu pub crawl along the way at the restaurants the dot the waterfront.
Suffolk: Within East Anglia lay Suffolk, a picturesque agricultural and beach county which is a growing favorite of tourists. Get off the beaten path and explore Suffolk which has beach front, and untouched countryside all around. Visit Newmarket for the horse racing and amateur historians should check out Sutton Hoo, a national trust site.
Lincolnshire: With over a million residents spread throughout small and medium sized towns, Lincolnshire has an agricultural background and much of the UK is supplied by the meats, vegetables, and dairy grown in this area. With many houses and halls and manors to see - the history in Lincolnshire is a driving force for the tourism gains it has seen in the past decade.
East of England is gorgeous country - you shouldn’t feel trapped by traditional lodging like a hotel. You deserve to see this area like a local, on-the-ground, and enjoying the same privacy and amenities of home. A vacation rental makes a lot of sense for you if you’re traveling with your family or a group (FlipKey has over 400 in this area alone.)
