Christmas in the East 

It wouldn't be Christmas without the chance to meet Father Christmas, or exploring houses decorated for the festive season (complete with giant tree). Enjoy the taste of festive food or get crafty on one of our workshops. From winter walks in frosty landscapes to unique shopping experiences, we're embracing traditions old and new this Christmas.

Support the coast in the East of England 

From the exposed saltmarsh teeming with birdlife, brooding beneath endless skies; to the tiny harbours with stacks of lobster pots and brightly coloured boats strewn in the mud at low tide. We are a nation in love with our coastline, but it's thanks to your support that we can continue to care for it.
