There are four counties in the East of England: Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, and Essex. With London Stansted Airport, the International Gateway to the East of England, it is well connected with Europe and the rest of the world. In addition, Norwich International Airport offers multiple flights daily from Schiphol Airport, Amsterdam and London Southend Airport. This region has much to recommend it to expatriates considering a move to the UK and who are considering the East of England as a reasonable option. This area is interesting to live in and to travel around because of its history and culture, its accessibility to London, and its contrast between the flat Fenland countryside and the attractive rolling countryside of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. Aside from that, property prices in the region are considerably lower than those in London and the South-East. As a final note, parents will have a range of excellent schooling options available to them when considering the wealth of private schools in the region – more than 200 of which are well-known names like Bedford, Berkhamstead, Kings School Ely, Radlett, Summerhill, and Tring. It is just this alone that can make the East of England very attractive, especially to those working and trying to sell houses in the region.
The North of England, or simply the North, is a region of England, south of the Scottish border and north of the River Trent and the Midlands. Although opinions about which parts of England are in Northern England vary, it usually includes Cheshire, Cumbria, County Durham, Lancashire, Northumberland, Westmorland, Yorkshire, and parts of Lincolnshire. North England has many cities, but it also has many mountains and lakes. There are five major northern cities: Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Sheffield. While North England is quite far from London, there are excellent communication lines and motorways for easy travel around the country, and plenty of airports for international travel. There is no shortage of things to see and do in Northern England. From metropolises like Manchester to sleepy villages like Wark on Tyne, as well as rich history and world heritage sites, Northern England has much to offer. It is evident that the housing market in the North of England is continuing to grow. A great deal of new construction is occurring throughout this region, especially in the larger cities, and the housing prices are some of the lowest in the UK, making it an attractive place for people to live and work. The region offers plenty of things to do and is surrounded by beautiful natural scenery.
