Sheridans Guides to Great Britan & Ireland

East Anglia, Thames and Chilterns

From the varied flat lands in the East to the gentle beech-clad Chiltern Hills to the West, this is an area of two distinct parts.

The long lovely beaches of Suffolk lead us to Norwich, the city of medieval churches and cathedrals, and onto the Norfolk Broads. These tranquil wetlands offer relaxing canal boating holidays on its 300 km of navigable waterways and 30 lakes. Turning south we travel through the Cambridgeshire fenlands and pass by Ely, dominated by its famous cathedral for over 1,300 years, to the great university town of Cambridge.

To the far west, perfect villages and market towns of wheaten coloured stone lie in the rolling Cotswold Hills. The beauty and history of the region is complemented by the wonderfully varied places to visit, from the city of spires, Oxford, and its ancient university, to great amusement parks and holiday resorts on the East Coast.
