LocationSouthwold

A delightful resort which is postcard perfect with a large beach lined with colourful beach huts and numerous cafes, delis and traditional pubs to choose from. The town is home to the famous Adnams Brewery which has a tasting bar and cafe. The pier is a fantastic hub of entertainment for all the family, with a selection of seasonal events, arcade games and cafes. Shows include the quirky Under the Pier Show and the Mirror Walk. Another landmark of the town is the lighthouse, just set back from the beach front and with a guided tour available. Minsmere Reserve is a great opportunity to take in the coastal scenery and the wildlife across the lagoons.

The local Maize Maze is worth a visit, there are 8 acres to lose yourself in and an outdoor play area with go karting on site too. The Alfred Corry museum pays tribute to the life boating pf the local area, with a display of maritime and fishing archives. Walk above the town up to Gun Hill, and see the cannons which used to protect against raids. The boating lake has crazy golf, and a cosy tea room which is great for a cream tea while watching the paddle boats and wildlife.

Take a step back in time with The Electric Picture Palace, a snug cinema which showcases a mix of new releases and classic films. Another idea for an evening out is the Summer Theatre in the Jubilee Hall, offering a variety of comedy and drama shows.

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.
