East England

Cambridge is one of Britain's most prestigious academic cities. Its history can be traced back to the Stone Age.

Situated on the River Cam it has been a place of trade and learning for hundreds of years.

Cambridge University colleges are world renowned. In particular, St John's College.

It features the famous 'Bridge of Sighs', built in 1831 over the Cam, which links the 19th-century New Court with the older part of the college. To be noted are the arched windows which are barred, supposedly to keep undergraduates in.

Not far away from Cambridge lies Norwich, and the extensive fenlands of Norfolk. To the south lies Essex and Roman cities like Colchester, and south coast beach resorts like Clacton-on-Sea and genteel Frinton, whilst travelling northward through Peterborough leads you towards East Midland cities like Leicester, Derby and Nottingham made famous by the tales of Robin Hood and Maid Marion.

East England has many attractions; excellent restaurants and cafe's with an abundance of good food and a wide variety of interesting shopping.
