School Trip options in East Anglia

Sights and sounds of the capital city

Much of East Anglia is steeped in ancient history and layer upon layer of fascinating human geography, with the region’s past evident at every turn. The name itself derives from settlers known as the Angles, who were divided into the North Folk and the South Folk. Successive waves of people have left their mark on the landscape and it is one of those groups that we will look at in more detail below.

The landscape itself is low lying and consequently, areas close to the coast have always been inundated by the sea. Before The Fens were drained, places as far inland as Ely were technically islands surrounded by the endless marshes. The warmer climate enjoyed in this part of the country means crops are significantly more productive, making it the agricultural bread basket of the UK. Away from the fields, East Anglia also boasts some large towns and cities like Norwich, Ipswich and of course Cambridge.

Schools have a fine choice of venues throughout Norfolk and Suffolk, including wildlife reserves and bird sanctuaries, cathedrals and churches, and a variety of museums covering everything from transport to earth sciences. To find out more about the options available to you as a party leader, take a look at our main regional page for the South East, or one of the three standout trips below.

On a map of the UK, East Anglia in the South East of England is one of the easiest areas to point to, bulging out into the North Sea as it does. Comprising principally of the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, with Cambridgeshire and Essex sometimes thrown in for good measure, it is a very large area of low lying land.
