Region Information

The East of England includes the ceremonial counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Essex has the highest population in the region.

Bedford, Luton, Basildon, Peterborough, Southend-on-Sea, Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Chelmsford and Cambridge are the region’s most populous towns. The southern part of the region lies in the London commuter belt.

Visit the East of England for royal estates, expansive wetlands, and a labyrinthine network of lakes and rivers. Home to many of England’s swanky coastal towns, African safari parks, and some of the most impressive country manor estates, there’s plenty to do in the East of England. Travel through England’s history with some of the country’s best preserved Roman remains, Normen motte-and-bailey castles, and Tudor keeps. For those who aren’t history buffs, there are also relaxing spa breaks, live music festivals, diverse wildlife and great shopping trips to enjoy. There’s something for everyone in the East of England.

The East of England (part of which forms ancient East Anglia) contains two distinct landscapes. One is of open flat fens ribboned by waterways and meres, dotted with old wind mills, the other is rich with gentle hills and villages of stone and flint cottages. The coastline is buffeted by the North sea to form long soft beaches and salt marshes that support a plethora of native and migrating birds. Much of this coastline is slowly being erroded by the elements.
