From the River Humber to the Wash and more, the East of England contains historic beauty aplenty, such as the ancient city of Lincoln, with its magnificent Cathedral. Nothing can prepare you for your first look at this amazing structure, towering, as it does, over this vibrant and splendid city.
Lincoln has a proud history dating back to Roman times, and is a wonderful shopping destination, stacked with cafes, bookstores and many other independent shops. It also has an exciting castle, where you can sample life in a Victorian courtroom – well worth a visit.
Those making the wise decision to book self-catering accommodation in the East of England will also get the chance to appreciate the region’s beautiful coastline, stretching down the North Sea coast, with tourism-facing entertainment centres such as Skegness and Cleethorpes. Amusements, beaches, family fun and all-round excitement are the order of the day here.
These places contrast with the rugged beauty of other East of England coastal areas, reaching down into the top of Norfolk with the likes of Great Yarmouth and Cromer a short distance away. If you want a quieter pace of life, then it’s here for you too – on the Norfolk broads, of course, a superb series of waterways in which all manner of craft can gently cruise around.
The wonderful Lincolnshire Wolds are another unsung asset of the East of England, where there are lots of unspoiled cottages to rent, from which you can stride out and lose yourself in the lush greenery and unspoiled glory of these wide open spaces. The man-made structures here are more than impressive too; take a trip across the Humber Bridge, a true feat of engineering and for a long time the world’s largest single-span suspension bridge. From here you can literally see for miles around.
Wonderful and entertainment-packed places such as Peterborough and Hull are also to be found and explored in the East of England, and there is never a dull moment in either with museums, art galleries, sport and leisure facilities, along with fantastic restaurants and vibrant nightlife.
Staying in UK cottages is the ideal way to enjoy the East of England, which although rightly popular, is not as over-crowded and built-up as some other areas of the UK – yet another reason to look to the East and book your trip.
