10 of the most spectacular views on the East Anglian rail network
There are many spectacular views to enjoy in East Anglia and there's no better way to see them than by train where you can watch the scenery go by and escape the hassle of traffic congestion and car park queues.
Here are some of our favourites (in no particular order!):
1. Enjoy views of pretty beach huts on the Sunshine Coast Line which starts at Colchester and takes you right to the stunning coastal resorts of Walton-on-the-Naze, Frinton-on-Sea and Clacton-on-Sea.
6. This stunning view looks over Reedham station to the grazing marshes beyond. Take the Wherry Lines between Norwich and Great Yarmouth / Lowestoft for access to stunning broads, coastlines and bird-watching in those huge skies.
7. You are spoilt for choice if you jump off the train at Manningtree, with its pretty boats and access to Constable Country where you can stand in the real-life version of John Constable's famous Haywain painting.
9. This is the incredible view from the top of Ely Cathedral on the Hereward Line which runs between Ely and Peterborough. Ely has excellent rail links so it's easy to get there by train and is a fascinating town to explore.
Plan your trip at Greater Anglia where you can find a range of great value fares and use the cheapest fare finder tool.
Face covering compliance is high on trains and stations and Greater Anglia is asking people to follow the Government's recommendation and keep on wearing them when it's busy.
As more people return to rail, Greater Anglia is seeing some trains and stations getting busier. Customers are encouraged to use the full length of trains and platforms and check the operator's 'Less Busy Trains tool' at greateranglia.co.uk to opt for a quieter train.
Trains are well ventilated either by air conditioning which replaces air inside the train every six to nine minutes or by open windows. Doors also open at every station.
Greater Anglia is also continuing with enhanced cleaning and sanitisation of trains and stations.
