Suffolk Wool Towns

Places to visit in Suffolk don’t come more picturesque than these historic towns and villages which have changed little since Tudor times and hold some of the most beautiful Suffolk attractions: timber-framed buildings, crooked streets and huge, lavish churches.

Constable Country

The Brecks

In the north of the county, Suffolk’s beauty becomes wilder: the ancient landscape is home to soaring hawks and twisted pines, while shady Thetford Forest is the perfect place to unleash your adrenaline through adventure sports.

Newmarket

If you’re looking for unique places to visit in Suffolk, look no further than Newmarket, the global home of thoroughbred horse racing, home to over 3000 horses and the former home of kings.

Bury St Edmunds

The architecture tells a thousand-year tale of tragedy, drama, and greatness;  In the town and in surrounding villages you’ll find gourmet restaurants, street cafes and an excellent selection of both independent and favourite high street shops.

Ipswich

This historic town is where deep maritime history meets a cutting-edge arts scene with a vibrant nightlife, markets, museums and waterfront to rival many a European city.

Shotley Peninsula
