The Hidden Places of East Anglia contains a wealth of interesting information on the history, the countryside, the towns and villages and the more established places of interest. But it also promotes the more secluded and little known visitor attractions and places to stay, eat and drink many of which are easy to miss unless you know exactly where you are going. East Anglia offers plenty for the visitor to explore in real Hidden Places country. Directly to the north of London, the region has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions. It is home to England's oldest recorded town - Colchester, alongside the historic cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Peterborough. Traditional market towns and picturesque villages abound - home to fine examples of architecture - timber-framed, flint, thatch and weather-boarded buildings. Norfolk is rightly famous for the Norfolk Broads, but this county of expansive horizons also offers visitors gentle rolling hills, a beautiful coastline with picturesque views and countryside rich in wildlife and nature. Suffolk is blessed with incomparable rural beauty. Meandering tidal rivers and numerous streams, brooks and gullies intersect a land blended with low hills and vast open spaces. Suffolk was made famous by the brush of John Constable and his paintings reflect the sheer beauty and tranquillity of this attractive county. Essex is a county that has rich maritime history going back as far as Roman Times, and in Colchester, possesses the oldest recorded town in England. Cambridgeshire is most famous for its ancient university as well as being the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell and Samuel Pepys. We include hotels, bed & breakfasts, restaurants, pubs, bars, teashops and cafes as well as historic houses, museums, gardens and many other attractions throughout the area, all of which are comprehensively indexed.

...When it was beautiful weather last summer a friend of mine asked if I would like a night away with her as a treat. This really was a lovely one off and we decided it would be lovely to go to the seaside. We opted for Llandudno as we have both travelled here a few times and have happy memories. We also thought that there would be plenty of sights for us to see. We chose this hotel after reading...
Advantages: Clean, basic, reasonably priced, well-situated Disadvantages: Could be better decor in rooms, buffet a bit hit and miss
...When our coach pulled up outside the back of Hotel Ternopil, I saw a large impersonal hotel, which looked like it had no charm or individuality, a throwback from the Soviet era. My first impressions were not entirely inaccurate, but the hotel is well situated, by Lake Ternopil, and has had a good re-vamp.
Whilst the outside of the hotel, which is in good condition, does look unappealing...

Review of Hotel Ternopil
Advantages: Clean and spacious rooms, friendly staff, good food, relatively cheap Disadvantages: Car park could be bigger
.... With Derry being the 2013 UK City of Culture, the prices were unreasonable (over £70 for a basic room in a Travelodge?), so when I saw this hotel offering bed and breakfast for £60 for the room, I thought it seemed reasonable. What swung it for me though was that this hotel had an 8.9 star rating on TripAdvisor, which was higher than some of what I would have considered the top hotels in the area.
