Framlingham is a pretty market town which is perfect for a quiet get away, and renowned for the imposing Framlingham castle. The famous story behind this Norman fortress is that Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen of England here, today its fascinating and colourful past is open for visitors to explore including the walk atop the defence wall and exhibitions. An interesting site nearby is the Saxstead Green Post Mill, where the working machinery of the corn mill can be viewed.

Easton Farm Park offers a farm experience for children where they can handle the animals, and cart rides are also available. The Suffolk Owl Sanctuary is also a great family day out, with over 80 birds of prey, gardens, a woodland walk and play area including a mini maze for children.

Helmingham Hall has gardens open to the public, and a moated manor with red deer roaming in the parklands. The tearoom are great after a relaxing stroll. This area is also home to the regions oldest vineyard, Shawsgate Vineyard offers tours and wine tasting which is best booked in advance. Local museums include the Parham Airfield Museum and the Lanham Museum which is housed within the castle itself and has collections of artefacts from the past daily life of living within the walls. The mid Suffolk Light Railway is a great way to tour the local area and take in the local countryside.


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.
