LocationWoodbridge

Woodbridge is a pretty waterside town, filled with history and perfect for any foodie enthusiasts as there is an abundance of fresh seafood available and market places. There are boat cruises available and the Woodbridge Museum is worth a visit, the town also hosts a fortnightly farmers market and an antiques centre. For the younger ones there is tenpin bowling and karting at Beacon Rally.

This area is perhaps most famous for being the location of Sutton Hoo, the site of a huge Anglo Saxon ship burial which is now a National Trust centre with many of the archaeological finds on display and various events held throughout the year. By the River Deben is the working Tide Mill, which has a museum of the fully restored machinery and milling stones in action. Landguard Fort is located at the mouth of the River Orwell, a large fortification to guard the river; today it houses many historical displays and re-enactment events.

There are plenty of local nature reserves and parks to explore with the family on a sunny day, including Rendlesham Forest, Elmhurst Park and the Suffolk Punch Trust. Orford Ness reserve is also a fascinating day out; there are marked trails across the flats which are home to migrating birds and there are decommissioned military buildings and towers now open to the public. Orford Castle has far reaching views across the reserve and out to sea, visitors can navigate the maze of turrets and passageways within the keep and there are displays of medieval artefacts.

Suffolk

The somewhat curious county of Suffolk forms a part of the region known as East Anglia. Its eastern edge is bounded by the North Sea, with neighbouring Norfolk to the north and Essex to the south. The county of Cambridgeshire lies to the west. It has no cities and no motorways, but it does have many gardens and ruins and history in spades, from the Magna Carta to the Saxon relics of Sutton Hoo.

Unusual (for Britain) timber-framed buildings, dating back to the 16th century, vie with Tudor mansions in the attractive streets of market towns. In common with Norfolk, it is a fairly flat county, with much of its area devoted to farming and other rural pursuits. Its coastal geology of sand and clay, combined with the longshore drift current of the sea, means that the land is eroding constantly. Sea defences protect many of the towns but, equally, a good deal of property has been lost as the cliffs are worn away, and more is threatened.

Suffolk is famous throughout the UK for its distinctive dialect, horse racing (the town of Newmarket is the epicentre of British racing) and the arts. Festivals and other shows are common, and fish and chips and Adnam's ale are the order of the day.

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
