How to get to Suffolk

Suffolk is easy to get to, whether you’re travelling from the UK or coming from overseas

A great way to get to Suffolk is by train. With refreshments on some trains and special deals for children on some tickets, you can sit back and relax while someone else does the driving.  You can find out more about Greater Anglia services here

If you’d prefer to drive to Suffolk a network of A roads threads the county, preserving the feel of the county that motorways would ruin, but still giving you easy access to everywhere you want to go. The A12 runs along the east coast from the M25, Colchester and Chelmsford through Ipswich, Woodbridge, Wickham Market, all the way to Lowestoft, providing good access to Aldeburgh and Southwold on the way. The A14 from Cambridge links Newmarket, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and Ipswich.

Sailing from abroad? Ferries dock in Harwich, opposite Felixstowe, from the Hook of Holland and Rotterdam. And while there are no Suffolk airports both Stansted Airport and Norwich Airport are only a short drive into the county.
