The East Anglia / Suffolk region
Streching from Felixstowe to Lowestoft along forty miles of almost pristine coast and inland to Newmarket, Suffolk is a combination of gently rolling woodland, river valleys and estuaries and is home to busy market and quant seaside towns and pretty timber-framed villages. Suffolk is famous for its vast skies, stunning coastline and delightful countryside as well as being the birthplace of both Benjamin Britain and Thomas Garinsborough. Whatever your interests there is much to enjoy in Suffolk all year round.
The Edwardian resort of Felixstowe has retained much of its original charm, with beautiful south facing gardens, a pier, theatre, and historic fort plus four miles of beach and a nature reserve.
The historic town of Aldeburgh situated on the site of a medieval fishing and shipbuilding centre is host to the International Aldeburgh Festival of music and the arts at Snape Maltings Concert Hall. The High Street, with its many attractive Georgian buildings housing art galleries trendy homeware shops and high end boutiques also makes room for the necessities of life for locals too. The towns historic buildings include the Moot Hall (c. 1520) and the 15th century church.
Southwold lies in the centre of the Heritage Coast, the River Blyth to the south and the Buss Creek to the north form the town boundaries, virtually making Southwold an island, limiting development and helping to retain Southwold´s old world charm.
Lowestoft is Britain’s most easterly town, famous for its maritime connections and award winning beaches. An important piece of Lowestoft's history has been recently revived in the shape of Lowestoft Porcelain. In production from 1757-1801, original examples are highly prized by collectors around the world. The new factory and gallery are open to the public.
Ipswich is the County town and England’s oldest continuously settled town since Anglo Saxon times, with medieval streets and architectural gems. The Heart of Suffolk is an ideal base for exploring the peaceful countryside and historic towns like Stowmarket in the Gipping valley, home to the Museum of East Anglian Life.
Bury St.Edmunds grew up around the powerful Abbey of St Edmund in medieval times. For five centuries it was visited by pilgrims who worshiped at the shrine of St Edmund, the martyred King of East Anglia.
Lavenham is one of several wool towns in Suffolk and is one of the best preserved medieval towns in the country, its appearance remains relatively untouched by time.
In the west of the County an area of rural hideaways include Thetford forest and countryside treats in peaceful surroundings. Newmarket, famous as the headquarters of British racing, is a thriving town with excellent shopping facilities. Sudbury, in the south of Suffolk, is the birthplace of the painter Thomas Gainsborough, and a fine collection of his works can be seen at Gainsborough's House.
Constable Country offers the chance to explore Dedham Vale and the Stour Valley where John Constable, one of England's most celebrated painters, found his inspiration. Walking in his footsteps offers visitors a chance to experience rural England at its most peaceful.
The Aldeburgh area
The seaside town of Aldeburgh is the perfect spot for a traditional family holiday or break away with friends with appeal to all age groups. Picturesquely set on the East Suffolk Heritage coastline, it is best known for its connections with the composer Benjamin Britten and its annual arts and music summer festival; as well as all the usual beach based activiites there is also a thriving sailing community, a golf course, and tennis courts.
The charming high street enjoys a wide mix of chic boutiques, art galleries plus local and brand name shops, many high quality restaurants and an independent cinema.
Once in Aldeburgh, visitors may not want to leave, but if wishing to venture further afield, the delights of the Heritage coast are all within easy reach. There is Snape Maltings with its concert hall, variety of shops, more galleries and antique collectors centre - it is also the departure point for boat trips exploring the upper reaches of the River Alde. Travel on a few miles to the unspoilt village of Orford, famous for its oystery, church and 12th-century castle. Travelling 1 mile in the other direction along the coast leads to the village of Thorpeness with its large boating lake, superb golf course and delightful beach. Also within easy reach are the seaside gems of Walberswick and Southwold, the RSPB reserve at Minsmere, NT sites at Dunwich Heath and Sutton Hoo and much more.
