A great base to explore the local wildlife reserves and the heritage coastline, this quiet town has a weekly market and a good range of shops and pubs. Nature lovers will have plenty of trails and reserves to choose from. RSPB Minsmere has a discovery centre and wildlife hides, there are events hosted throughout the year including guided walks, safari tours and nest box making. The Dunwich Heath Coastal Centre is also great for bird watching and home to many rare species, Captain’s Wood is a haven for fallow deer.

At Leiston Abbey are the ruins of a 14th century monastic abbey, and no visit to this area is complete without a trip to Sutton Hoo where a huge Anglo Saxon ship burial is on display, along with the archaeological finds from the site. The National Trust also run events such as guided tours and re-enactments. The Saxstead Green Post Mill is a 13th century corn mill open seasonally to the public, with the machinery still in working order.

There are several seaside resorts within easy reach including Great Yarmouth, Aldeburgh, Southwold and Felixstowe. The Long Shop museum has lots of great hands on activities, industrial exhibits and traction engines.


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.
