A bright and effective new look for the RG guidebooks has also been heralded by the first editions of guides to some of England's most beautiful regions. Easy to bypass, but difficult to find an excuse to leave; Norfolk and Suffolk seep quintessential English charm and the assortment of full colour, full size picture pages in the guide show it off in all its idyllic glory. The guide also packs in its fair share of maps which include a decent level of detail and, thankfully, provide labels for every road, unlike the infuriating simplistic nature of the newly-designed Lonely Planets.

Most importantly, the guide couldn't be easier to navigate. Sections are coloured and numbered and offer a wide range of sights and suggestions that are described in depth and in the easy-going, colloquial tone that RG are well known for. Straddling the eight sections that make up the guide (five dedicated to Norfolk, three to Suffolk), are the general info areas. At the front of the book, the 'Basics' section is well-informed and packed with info that will either be vital or irrelevant to you, but is useful having all the same. A guide to local beers and ales, for which the region is famous for, takes up a whole page and is a useful starting point if you fancy sampling East Anglia's many country pubs. However, the calendar of events is sparse in places, even stretching to informing the reader the dates for Hallowe'en and New Years Eve- events which certainly aren't unique, or celebrated uniquely, in Norfolk and Suffolk.
Another niggle is the faint font that 'Basics' is typed in. I felt my eyes straining to read the words although key words are in bold. The other fonts used throughout the guide are fine, if a little small.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good overall 3 Jun 2012
Overall a good survey of what to do in East Anglia for a week. Attractively and well laid out in sections and sensible geographical chunks of the Counties. There's a good selection of pubs and eating places, local history, and I was happy to see listings for accessible locations and activities as well as signposting for the LGBT scene. I was, however, slightly disappointed that the thriving vegetarian scene in Norfolk didn't get a mention.

The book captures well the charm and change along the North Norfolk coast, with the cheerful simple fun of Cromer contrasted to the more quaint Sheringham and Holt, and the long outstretched beaches around Holkham.

There were a few annoying obsolete details in the Norwich section. Cafe 103 closed some time back, as did the Spectrum Brewery. Similarly, I wasn't quite sure why the Mad Moose was included when other nearby venues like the Workshop weren't...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have 24 July 2014
By Janet
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are planning a trip to this beautiful part of the world, please make sure you take this book with you. It came in so useful when planning our 'days out'. It's a very honest, no-nonsense book. We found a couple of villages that were little gems that we might not have bothered with otherwise but, because they were praised by Martin Dunford, we gave them a go and weren't disappointed. Thoroughly recommended.
