Flat. That's the word that best describes East Anglia. The level landscape imparts a sense of space and freedom, and also allows opportunities for easy walks and cycling. Much of that landscape was under water until several centuries ago; prodigious drainage projects from the middle Ages onward have reclaimed land that was once best navigated in a flat-bottomed boat.
Moving from the delights of nature to rich architectural heritage, Cambridge is first and foremost a university town - though the inhabitants have struggled to accept the large student population in their midst down the centuries. Cambridge University is a hugely popular tourist destination and as you would expect Cambridgeshire Hotels and Apartments are often very busy over the weekend and summer holiday periods.
Although Cambridge can be crowded with tourists on occasion, East Anglia as a whole is largely unaffected by the onslaught of tourism. Even with the grand selection of quaint guest houses and hotels there are still pockets of rural calm, such as Dedham Vale, the valley of the river Stour around Dedham and East Bergholt so beloved of native son John Constable. Many of the scenes that Constable painted can still be appreciated today.
