Explore the broad vistas, historic cities and tranquil coastlines of England’s eastern counties, on a 4 day itinerary from Cambridgeshire to Norfolk. Start in Cambridge, a quintessentially English city with the River Cam meandering through the centre. Cambridge has an abundance of museums, colleges and attractions to keep you entertained for the first two days of your 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 days visit and is an area of wetlands with connecting rivers and lakes and a great place to explore by boat.
