East Anglia and the East of England.

Cambridge is one of the most important and beautiful towns not only in East Anglia, but also in Britain. The quality of its buildings, in particular those belonging to the University, and the special atmosphere created by the felicitous combination of river and gardens have given the city a place on the itinerary of every visitor to this country. The University has influenced not only the architecture of the town but also its character: its bookshops are among the finest in the country, and the adventurous programmes of the two theatres and the cinemas, the frequency of excellent concerts and the wide range of restaurants reflect the tastes and interests of the academic population.

In an age of new boundaries the old concise limits of East Anglia - Suffolk, Norfolk and the Isle of Ely - have been stretched alarmingly in order to accomodate weather forecasts, regional development schemes and TV programme planning.
