Water, Water Everywhere
Our region is blessed with beautiful water, water everywhere. Suffolk and Essex boast the longest county coastlines in England, formed by a large number of peaceful coastal estuaries.
The complex coastline has restricted development, helping to preserve the peaceful rural landscape that is so great for birdwatching and cycling. Read more about the coastline here.
Further inland from the coast, all of these estuaries are fed by a myriad of rivers, which adds great interest and variety to the landscape.
So, strangely, you are never far from water here, even though we enjoy the driest climate in the country!
