Cambridge

"I like Cambridge as there are a lot of nice places to eat and places to see – even if it’s just a walk at lunchtime. I live in Sawtry which is about 45 minutes drive away. It's a village in the countryside, and good for commuting as it’s only a mile or so from the A1." - Graduate Trainee

Bury St Edmunds

"I enjoy walking in Thetford Forest, one of the largest in Britain. It’s also a good area for cycling as it is very flat! The Broads National Park is a protected area and there are many beautiful beaches to explore." - Graduate Trainee

Colchester

“The further south in the region you go, especially ‘round the London fringes, public transport is good. People are generally very friendly and everywhere I have been, there’s been a good atmosphere.” - Graduate Trainee

Ipswich

"East of England is surrounded by the coast and beautiful countryside. There’s Go Ape! at Thetford Forest and a variety of other outdoor activities. Plus there are lots of sports clubs within the region and you have close links to Milton Keynes Snow Dome." - Graduate Trainee

Clacton-on-Sea

“I’ve just moved to Clacton-on- Sea and so far, the best thing about the area is that it’s close to the coast and there’s lots of green spaces nearby to explore. However, it’s close enough to London that you can still experience the city.” - Graduate Trainee
