* '''Fenland''' or '''The Fens''' is a an area which crosses the Norfolk and Cambridgeshire boundary. It was previously marshland but was drained in the late 1700s and early 1800s and is now some of the most fertile farmland in the country, along with being exceptionally flat. Most of the area's towns are built on high land which formed islands in the marsh, the most notable of these being Wisbech and the city of Ely. The area is also home to a large Eastern European population who recently immigrated there to work on the land after a number of Eastern European countries joined UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion. As a result the area is more pro-UKIP than most of the UK, and the Fenland town of Ramsey became the first town council to be run by UKIP.

* '''Norfolk''': Although home to two large shopping centres, several live music venues and one the largest universities in England, the University of East Anglia. Norwich and Norfolk in general are often (rather unfairly) stereotyped as being at best remote, unsophisticated and out of step with national trends, even by East Anglian standards; and at worst, incestuous and almost medieval the closest American CulturalTranslation might be the more exaggerated depictions of the DeepSouth. This 'otherness' is humorously acknowledged by the inhabitants, who have an old and self-deprecating saying: someone or something is ''"normal for Norfolk"''. Norfolk's main towns include:
