Welcome to Visit Suffolk
Suffolk is a county that unless you travel slowly through it, you may miss many of its charming and redeeming features. From Lowestoft to Felixstowe, where the North Sea constantly erodes the coastline of Suffolk are the picturesque seaside resorts of Dunwich, Orford, Southwold and Aldeburgh where there are sandy heaths and mud flats. Inland, Suffolk is an agricultural landscape of wheat fields, thatched cottages in rural villages and attractive market towns like Bungay, Beccles and Bury St. Edmunds; that are rich in their own history making the region of particular interest to the visiting tourist.
Suffolk is easily accessible from London and the South by road, M11, A11 and the A12 or from the Midlands via Cambridge on the A45 being the primary roads into the county. There are mainline train and coach services that run regularly from most places across the region connecting with London and the rest of the country. Suffolk has a wide range of accommodation on offer, from seaside guesthouses to countryside caravan and camping sites; market town hotels to self catering barn conversions that can provide good quality accommodation to suit all types of budgets whilst holidaying in Suffolk. Whether you’re looking for just a short break or a family summer holiday, Suffolk has plenty of activities and attractions to fulfil your vacation during your stay in the area.
Suffolk has various family attractions like Pleasurewood Hills Theme Park off the A12 near Lowestoft for the thrill seekers or The Otter Trust near Earsham on the A143 where there is the largest collection of otters in natural enclosures in the world for the nature lover to discover. Framlingham Castle near Ipswich and Ickworth House near Bury St. Edmunds are two of the county’s grand estates that are open to the public to visit when not exploring the Suffolk coastline. Suffolk seems quite remote and sparsely populated so therefore remains one of the loveliest regions in the country that is well worth taking a closer look at and exploring the many delights that you’ll find when on holiday in Suffolk.
