Things so see and do
It’s all about beach life in Suffolk, and you’ll have no shortage of choices. Aldeburgh has a traditional seafront promenade, pebble beach and lively high street. Whereas brightly coloured beach huts, a pier, arcades and adventure golf offer hours of traditional seaside fun at Felixstowe.
It’s not just the beach where you can enjoy the outdoors in Suffolk. It also has lovely countryside, with Flatford being the subject of many of John Constable’s paintings. The famous artist captured the beauty of the area in his works, and you can walk in his shoes and enjoy the same scenes he did.
Urban life can be enjoyed in the waterfront town of Ipswich. Climb aboard a pleasure boat for a relaxing river cruise along the River Orwell, before exploring art history at the Tudor Christchurch Mansion. Here you’ll find the largest collection of Gainsborough and Constable paintings outside London, and you can enjoy browsing the collections at your leisure.
Another of Suffolk’s highlights is Bury St Edmunds, a historic town with a great cathedral. Filled with independent stores, restaurants and cafes, it’s also home to Britain’s smallest pub which measures a 15ft by 7ft. Culture can be enjoyed at The Apex, Moyse’s Hall Museum and the Theatre Royal.
There are a wide variety of schools for children of all ages throughout Suffolk, making the area great for families. Higher education establishments are also present here, such as the University Campus Suffolk; a collaboration between the Universities of Essex and East Anglia.
