6 Things To Do in Scenic Suffolk

With miles and miles of farmland across the county, and an impressive coastline, Suffolk is one of the UK’s most idyllic spots. To introduce you to this charming location, we’ve put together a list of the county’s most beautiful attractions, all of which are close to our Suffolk developments.

Appreciate the beauty of St Edmunsbury Cathedral 

Since the 11th century, this location has been used as a place of worship, and has gradually grown into the grand cathedral that we see today. Following its confirmation as a cathedral in 1914, additional cloisters and chapels have been built including the significant Millennium Tower. Visitors are able to roam about the cathedral and observe its intricate details, and they also have a full events schedule for locals.

Immerse yourself in history at the Alfred Corry Lifeboat Museum

This museum, at Southwold Harbour, is filled with items that recount the experiences of the crew who managed the famous lifeboat which served Southwold from 1893 to 1918 (saving 47 lives during that time). The site is managed by a team of volunteers, who are always looking for volunteers to get involved.

We do like to be beside the seaside

Many of Suffolk’s coastal locations are complemented by a picturesque pier. The charming piers at Shotley, Felixstowe, Southwold, as well as Lowestoft’s South Pier and Claremont Pier, are all wonderful for an afternoon stroll and some light family entertainment.

National Trust Walks for every occasion

With charming villages, stunning beaches, enchanting country estates, and endless woodland walks, you really are spoilt for choice for pretty walks in Suffolk. Local National Trust locations include Dunwich Heath, Flatford, Ickworth and Sutton Hoo – ideal for long family strolls and clearing away the cobwebs. 

Get your Christmas goodies at Suffolk Food Hall

This farm shop, restaurant, cafe garden centre and much more is just south of Ipswich. It’s ideal for those who are passionate about food; where it comes from, how it’s been handled and what to do with it. As well as award-winning services, including the Best On Farm Butcher in Britain, you can purchase your Christmas tree, hampers and take in the stunning views while you eat lunch in The Cook House.
