Suffolk

The whole of East Anglia was left behind when the hills, sweeping valleys and dramatic vistas were being handed out to the rest of the UK. However, its exactly this lack of a notable vertical element that makes the region so attractive and different. The coastlines are fantastic, encompassing the largest privately owned port in the UK, the mudflats of north Essex and the Naze to the crumbling sandstone cliffs that run through Minsmere's bird reserve to beyond the much photographed lighthouse at Happisburgh. We have windmills by the handful, piers that pierce the sea in any number of seaside resorts to the miles of flat golden sands of Brancaster and the north Norfolk coast. Finally, as Norfolk turns in to Lincolnshire, there is the Wash - and the striped cliff and green covered rock mounds of Hunstanton - the only piece of Anglian coast that picks up the sun as it goes down at the end of the day. Spoiled for choice - I should think so...
