PHOTOGRAPHING EAST ANGLIA is a photography-location and visitor guidebook. An essential companion for anyone with a camera — whether you are using a high-end DSLR or a mobile phone camera — who is visiting East Anglia.
The landscape of East Anglia is unique, giving photographic opportunities not found anywhere else in the UK. Its extensive coastline, lapped by the North Sea, and stretching from the Wash in the north then south to the Thames Estuary, is home to wild marshes, sandy beaches and dunes, beach huts and old harbours filled with boats.
Numerous nature reserves allow access to some of the best birdwatching in the UK. Inland, the fens, heaths, villages, waterways and woodlands inspired the paintings of John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough.
You will find medieval castles, ancient villages, stately homes such as Sandringham House—the private home of Queen Elizabeth II—and the historic cities of Cambridge and Norwich. The Broads National Park is an extensive wetland area, cut by seven rivers, where under big East Anglian skies, windmills and windpumps look over a timeless landscape of reedbeds and grazing marshes.
