East of England
Whether you live here or are just visiting, the East of England has plenty of places to explore, time and time again
We're already seeing signs that spring has arrived, as gardens re-awaken and wildlife emerges.
- We thought we'd share our top spots for daffodils in the East before they're gone for another year.
- Lambing time has begun, with thousands of new arrivals expected at our places this spring.
- If you love our scones, we've got a treat in store for you this April with our new chocolate scone recipe.

Norfolk's popularity is well deserved. From the stunning Norfolk Coast to the chance to discover the stories and drama behind magnificent houses like Blickling, Felbrigg and Oxburgh Hall. Wander around their gardens as spring bulbs burst to life and listen out for the sounds of spring at places like Sheringham Park.
Not far from the centre of Cambridge, savour the heady scent of spring flowers carpeting the gardens at Anglesey Abbey or escape to Wicken Fen and listen out for the first signs of spring. Meet the new arrivals at Wimpole Home Farm or explore a working mill at Houghton. What stories will you uncover?
The question about Suffolk, is where will you visit first? From a landscape made famous by John Constable to the royal burial ground at Sutton Hoo. Enjoy a walk along the iconic Suffolk coastline and around picturesque wool towns. And don't miss the chance to discover what life was like above and below stairs at Ickworth.
Over the border
In Hertfordshire you'll find Shaw's Corner, the home of playwright George Bernard Shaw; who 70 years ago was one of the most famous, most photographed and most quoted men in the world. Shaw's will be re-opening its doors in June 2015.
This month's 'photo of the month' goes to Nigel Murgatroyd, for his fantastic photo of this frog. There are lots of frogs about at the moment as mating season is underway - look (and listen) out for them at places like Sheringham Park. Why not see what other visitors have snapped this month? We'd love to see your pics too.
