What Cara Will See

Blogger has finally bowed to my will, and allowed me to upload my pictures. So here are the pics of what I hope to see! The half-timbered houses here are in Lavenham, Suffolk, which is reputed to be the prettiest village in England. (When you can see it around the tourists, that is.)

The bridge here is in Bury St. Edmunds, in Norfolk. I’ve never been to Bury St. Edmunds, so I have no idea what I’ll find — but it’s supposed to be quite beautiful.

This, of course, is Bath! I love Bath. Bath buns, the Assembly Rooms, the Pump Room…I love just walking around. I’ll even walk up to the fashionable residence areas of Jane Austen’s time — Cavendish Crescent, Lansdowne Crescent, Camden Place — though it’s a fair walk uphill!

Here we have the fantastically beautiful Norwich Cathedral — it’s a Norman cathedral, with massive round pillars. Very impressive — and much less touristy than Salisbury or Canterbury or Ely or the like. When I was a student I would visit the cathedral almost every weekend, and then eat sausage rolls for 30p in the little cafe that was attached.

And this is Elm Hill, a medieval street in Norwich. (Gorgeous, but painful to walk on in thin shoes!)

Well, those are my pics! When I come back, I’ll have pics of my own to share!

    Is there room for both me and Diane, do you think????

  4. Bon voyage, Cara! From what I remember of Bury St. Edmunds it had lovely Georgian architecture and also the ruins of a medieval abbey. Also Green King ale, which didn’t hurt a bit.
    Norwich is beautiful, too.
    Check out Bristol while you’re in the west country–I loved it when I was there (and all the museums are free!).
