Retirement living in East Anglia 

East Anglia, formally known as the Kingdom of East Anglia, or the Kingdom of East Angles, is an area in the East of England combining Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire - though some claim it also stretches into Essex, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. From the 6th century onwards, it was a small independent realm and it joined the Kingdom of England in 918. As you’d expect, the area is steeped in history, as well as boasting a vast array of attractions and outstanding natural beauty. Being a kingdom, it even has an East Anglia flag!
