Vibrant East England invests heavily in academia and ICT. Innovation oozes from Cambridge's 31 colleges and surrounding Silicon Fen business and science parks. Think alongside great minds in grand Cambridge University college halls, the grand Victorian Corn Exchange or the listed Guildhall. Turn away days turn into quintessentially English pastimes and hire a candy-coloured beach hut on Suffolk's breezy shingle beaches or a narrow boat on the sleepy Norfolk Broads waterways. Hold conferences in aircraft hangars alongside Concorde or take up tank riding on Imperial War Museum Duxford's airfields. Mingle with champions and VIPs in private enclosures and pavilions on Newmarket race days.
