Suffolk, one of the three main counties making up East Anglia, is Constable country, where the county’s time-ravaged coastline spreads itself under huge skies to convey an impressive sense of isolation and solitude. Highly evocative and atmospheric, this is where Suffolk’s rivers wind lazily to the sea and notorious 18th-century smugglers hid from the excise men.

Much like the Norfolk coast, Suffolk is renowned as a summer family holiday destination mainly due to its beautiful coastline and popular seaside towns such as Aldeburgh however, much of it is also readily accessible from London making it equally perfect for a weekend away or short midweek break.

Walking holidays are also one of Suffolk’s most popular recreational activities. It may be flat but the county has much to discover on foot – not least the isolated Heritage Coast, which can be accessed via the Suffolk Coast Path. Running for 50 miles along the edge of the shore, between Felixstowe and Lowestoft, the trail is a fascinating blend of ecology and military history.

Along this stretch, you’ll find Snape Maltings, renowned as the home of the Aldeburgh Festival. Benjamin Britten lived at Snape and wrote Peter Grimes here. Another famous landmark in this region is Southwold, its distinctive, white-walled lighthouse standing sentinel above the town.

Suffolk is renowned for many other historic towns. Bury St Edmunds, Sudbury and Ipswich feature prominently on the tourist trail, while picturesque Lavenham, Kersey and Debenham are a reminder of the county’s important role in the wool industry.
