Just a stones throw from Cambridge, it's a busy time at Wimpole Home Farm with the arrival of lots of little lambs and at Wicken Fen too the konik ponies are having foals. The gardens at Anglesey Abbey always look stunning.


There are some amazing houses in Norfolk, just waiting for you to explore them. Blickling, Felbrigg and Oxburgh Hall all have fascinating stories to tell. What will you discover, what items in the collection will grab your interest?


The question about Suffolk, is where will you visit first? Follow in the footsteps of John Constable or discover more about Anglo-Saxon royalty at Sutton Hoo. What was it really like to live and work below stairs at Ickworth?

  • Essex

    There's more to Essex than first meets the eye. Tucked away you'll find lots of hidden gems.

  • Bedfordshire

    Choose Bedfordshire for activity and exploration, peace and quiet, wildlife and beauty.

  • Over the border

    In Hertfordshire you'll find Shaw's Corner, the home of playwright George Bernard Shaw.
