With a landscape made famous by the artist John Constable to the royal burial ground at Sutton Hoo, Suffolk has a fascinating history. There's lots of variety too, from the coastline in the east to the picturesque wool towns in the west. And you won't want to miss Ickworth with its Italianate garden and parkland.
From the Norfolk coastline with its abundance of wildlife to the houses and gardens at Blickling, Felbrigg and Oxburgh Hall, Norfolk's popularity is well deserved. The landscaped parkland at Sheringham Park and the wide expanse of the Norfolk Broads is well worth a visit too.
Not far from Cambridge you'll find Anglesey Abbey, where the gardens boast colour throughout the year. A little further afield you'll discover Wimpole with acres of space to explore, the distinctive fenland landscape of Wicken Fen and views of one of the last working mills on the River Ouse.
