Sweeping skies and vast sandy beaches (500 miles of them, to be precise!) are just the tip of the iceberg in the rural idyll of the East of England, with a wealth of history and culture to be found in its charming market towns and villages. Our entries from this region make the most of the mixture of history and modernity, tradition and innovation so characteristic of this vibrant and diverse part of England.
The East region covers the counties of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Essex and Hertfordshire.
