East Anglia 4 day trip
Cambridge - Norwich
This 4 day East Anglia itinerary from Cambridgeshire to Norfolk takes in broad vistas, historic cities and the tranquil coastlines of England’s eastern counties. Cambridge, a quintessentially English city with the River Cam meandering through the centre, is a great place to start. It has an abundance of museums, colleges and attractions to keep visitors entertained for the first two days of their trip. Then on to Norwich, a medieval market town rich in history, with Norwich Castle and Cathedral the focal points in the town centre. The Norfolk Broads is worth a full day of exploration by boat; this area of wetlands with connecting rivers and lakes is truly impressive.
