Think of Cambridgeshire and immediately you think of the beautiful and ancient scholastic buildings that make up the colleges of Cambridge University. Pictures of the peaceful and meandering River Cam come to mind together with "The Backs" of seven of the city's colleges that overlook the river. This is a mecca for sightseers as they are leisurely punted up and down river mulling over the many great names that have been educated here, but there is more to Cambridgeshire than university buildings and education. History and religion have left their mark on the region too. The Cathedral in Ely for example towers over The Fens and dominates the skyline. It is one of England's largest and most beautiful Cathedrals and is famed for its unique octagonal tower, which when lit up, acts as a beacon for people from miles around. Pay a visit to Ely's museum which is housed in the city's old jailhouse, here history and religion combine to bring you a taste of what life was like many hundreds of years ago.
Perhaps the most well known of Ely's former residents was the military leader and politician, Oliver Cromwell. In 1636, at the age of just 37, he inherited a large estate at Stuntney, just two miles from Ely. Cromwell was the areas local tax collector and it was his job to ensure that all the local taxes, which included money, wheat and straw, were delivered to the Dean of the Cathedral on time. He was permitted to keep any excess that he collected and quickly became a man of property and considerable wealth as a result. The Cromwell's left Stnntney and Ely sometime in 1647, but you can still see their house, which is now an award winning interactive tourist attraction and information centre.

Inland, and you are greeted by acres of gently rolling fields interspersed with picturesque, chocolate box villages. Some truly wonderful woodlands can be found here in an area which abounds with ancient market towns, many of which still bear the markings of their Anglo-Saxon origins. Bury St Edmunds was once the capital of the Saxon Kingdom of Anglia, and the town of Lavenham which has hardly changed since its heyday in the Middle Ages when all its money came from the wool trade, is a photo opportunity not to be missed.

You'll never tire of Norfolk's countryside and coast. Much of it has been labelled an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and if boating is your thing then you have all of the Norfolk Broads to explore. The Broads are a series of interconnected lakes many of which are freely navigable with a number having been dredged creating channels that are open for use. This allows you to sail through some of the most beautiful and unspoiled countryside in East Anglia. Norfolk offers many miles of coastline and one of its real attractions is that even in the busiest of periods, it is still possible to find yourselves relaxing in splendid isolation. The seaside towns of Great Yarmouth and Crommer hold tremendous appeal amongst the young; Yarmouth with its candyfloss, toffee apple and ice-cream image and Crommer for its internationally famous crabs.
Norwich is known as the most complete medieval city in Britain. Its 12th century Norman Castle and many old churches are packed with treasures of national importance. In stark contrast however, is the new award winning, multi media Norwich, epitomised by The Forum. The Forum is not only home to the BBC's regional studios; it is a street entertainment venue featuring a digital gallery displaying all manner of film, imagery and sound. Events here include free exhibitions, summer street entertainments and an outdoor ice rink at Christmas. A great place to enjoy a night out, Norwich hosts many stylish café bars, pubs, clubs and restaurants. It is also a famous concert, exhibition and festival venue and a seed bed for the arts with alternative comedy, classical music, top West End musicals, indie films and local and internationally famous bands playing here in a year long programme of entertainments.

Essex is a rural county, dotted with pretty villages and picturesque countryside; it has one of the longest coastlines of any county in England and its resort towns of Southend-on-Sea and Clacton-on-Sea, offer all the traditional fun of the seaside. Even the quieter ones like Walton-on-the-Naze, which is unfortunately slowly slipping into the sea, and Frinton-on-Sea have their undeniable attractions. There are many cliff top walks and rugged coves to be found along the Essex coastline and there are some lengthy stretches of quite beautiful beach.
Essex is not all about the seaside though, it is a diverse region chock full of treasures; there's the Colne Valley Railway for example, where you can get a real insight into the travel and transport arrangements of yesteryear. Here a large and varied collection of operational vintage steam and diesel engines, carriages and wagons representing much of the regions railway heritage are available to see, or visit Hedingham Castle; its 110 feet high Norman keep has four floors to explore, one of which includes a magnificent banqueting hall featuring a 28 foot arch. For the best view of this splendid room, go to the Minstrels' Gallery, built within the thickness of the 12 foot walls, this is where the court's entertainers would rest before and after their appearances. For a taste of something a little more up to date, why not seek out the sweet pleasure of homemade jams and visit the small village of Tiptree. Here you'll find, arguably, the best tasting jams jam produced anywhere in the country.

If Hertfordshire were a colour, it would be green, for the most part anyway. The Government has designated at least half of the county as Green Belt Land. It therefore cannot be built upon and remains a combination of picturesque woodland, river valley, and open farmland. The Chiltern Hills have been marked out as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there are more than 1,800 miles of public path and rights of way, to help you enjoy it. This includes The Hertfordshire Way, a 166-mile circular footpath. For the more adventurous the county is criss-crossed by canals and rivers and its many lakes provide ample opportunity for water sports such as sailing and canoeing as well as for more gentle boat cruises that depart from various points throughout the county.
Some parts of Hertfordshire are less than 20 minutes from central London by train making it ideal for the commuter as it combines speed of connection with some quite beautiful home surroundings and its proximity to London provides employment opportunities aplenty with commuters making the most of the fast train links into the Capital. The county is one of contrasts, blending together to create a superb quality of life for residents and visitors. Thriving modern towns have developed amongst older more historic ones and quiet country lanes and sleepy, picturesque villages are never far away. Watford is the county's largest town, situated within the M25 motorway belt, it has a thriving shopping centre and is the headquarters for many large corporations who relocated there initially to escape the high rents and business rates of London. Other large, historic towns include St Albans, Hitchin and Hertford.

Bedfordshire is located just 30 miles from London. It is just that little bit further out but still easily commutable for the most part. It is a favoured location for all those who want to be within striking distance of the Capital but don't want to pay the big prices that property closer in can command. The county benefits from a rich rural landscape of gently rolling countryside, meandering rivers and pretty villages and like Hertfordshire; there are a good number of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty around the place. It lends itself to the walker, the rambler, the cyclist and the horseman with a good number of trails and circular routes with both manmade and natural attractions to be seen en route. Stately homes, gardens, woodland walks, nature reserves, country parks and world-famous animal parks are just a few of the must sees that Bedfordshire is blessed with and wherever your travels take you, there are some great places to eat. Many villages and hamlets offer a wide variety of pubs and inns, often serving home cooked meals using locally produced ingredients. Bedfordshire has a variety of excellent shopping, attractions and sporting facilities for all ages.
Though Bedford is the county town and a pretty one at that with the Great River Ouse running through it, it might be argued that Luton is the true hive of Bedfordshire activity. It is certainly the county's transport hub with easy connections to London's St Pancras and of course the London Luton International airport. The airport brings thousands of visitors a year to the town, most of whom are just passing through but it has certainly put Luton on the map, as has its University and its annual carnival, now the largest one-day event of its kind in Europe.
