Suffolk, Visitor & Tourism Guide



National Park and AONBs, Heritage Coast and Constable Country
In the East of England. The North Sea to the east. Bordered by Norfolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. London is to the south west.

Suffolk is home to a National Park. The Broads National Park covers the Suffolk and Norfolk border.

There are two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, too. Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB is coastal and Dedham Vale AONB inland on the Suffolk and Essex border.

Towns and villages
For places in which to base yourself, try the county town Ipswich on the edge of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB. Other options include Lowestoft and Bury St Edmunds, Framlingham and Southwold. There are Aldeburgh, Woodbridge and Sudbury. For something more intimate, Lavenham is one of the UK's most beautiful villages. You could also research Walberswick, Dunwich, Long Melford and Bawdsey.

Things To Do
With such as fine coast, there's plenty to experience. Head for Southwold Beach, Southwold Pier and Benacre Beach. The Suffolk Heritage Coast is within the coastal AONB so it's some of the best coastline in the country.

For culture, Sutton Hoo is essential. Try also Lowestoft Museum, Southwold Museum, Ipswich Museum, Gainsborough's House, National Horseracing Museum, Newmarket and National Stud, Museum of East Anglian Life and Bridge Cottage (and the area where John Constable painted).

If you're looking for historical buildings, try Framlingham Castle and Orford Castle.

For nature, explore Dunwich Heath, RSPB Stour Estuary and Orford Ness. For fresh air, try The Broads, Somerleyton Hall Gardens, Dunwich Heath, River Stour, The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Path.
