Suffolk Holidays

Many head to the east of the county to visit the stunning coastline which stretches for some forty five miles, with both beautiful sandy beaches and shingle shores. Sitting within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB, Aldeburgh is possibly one of the most popular seaside retreats with its Blue Flag shingle beach, fantastic independent boutiques, fine restaurants, traditional pubs and great fish and chips! Lowestoft is another popular choice for those looking for a traditional seaside experience, with its sandy beaches, colourful beach huts and iconic lighthouse that keeps watch over the town. Surrounded by beautiful countryside is the charming heritage seaside town of Southwold, famed for its award winning pier and loved for its golden sands, weekly markets and excellent restaurants and pubs selling local ales brewed by Southwold based Adnams.

The heart of Suffolk is home to the wool towns and villages, which gained their wealth in the 15th Century from the wool trade. Still very much encapsulated in the bygone era, picturesque villages and towns such as Lavenham, Clare, Cavendish, Long Melford and Kersey still today show some of the finest examples of medieval architecture in the country.

A visit to Suffolk would not be complete without a trip to the wetland broads in the north of the county. The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads is the largest protected wetland area in the country – a haven for wildlife (great for bird watchers!) with National Park status.

With a diverse landscape of heritage coastline, wetland areas, historic towns, quintessentially English villages and beautiful rolling countryside, Suffolk is a unique and popular holiday destination and a convenient location for many seeking a weekend-away. If you only have a couple of nights to see Suffolk's many attractions, take a look at our things to do guide to help you experience a true taste of Suffolk life.
