Surrounding local area

The Heritage Coastal towns


FRAMLINGHAM
Framlingham’s key attraction is it’s magnificent late 12th-century castle. Surrounded by parkland and estates this was once at the centre of a vast network of power and influence. Once the refuge of Mary Tudor before she became Queen in 1553, visitors are encouraged to explore over 800 years of life at the Castle in the ‘From Powerhouse to Poorhouse’ exhibition.

WOODBRIDGE
Is a beautiful riverside town full of things to see and do. This busy market town has deep connections to the water, and the surrounding area offers some of the most important historical sites in the country.Charming shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes are found all over town, offset by picture-perfect architecture. Shoppers will love Woodbridge’s quirky outdoor markets, which are packed with vintage traders and gorgeous finds, and foodies should visit the Woodbridge Shuck, an annual autumn festival of delicious seafood, held as a fringe event of the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival.

ORFORD AND ORFORDNESS
Lying within the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Orford is a quiet, pretty village, steeped in history. The village grew in importance in the 12th Century when Henry II commissioned the Castle to be built. Orford is famous for its local oysters and smokehouses and has two shops selling a wide range of smoked produce. Pop into Pinney's in Orford to pick up some of the finest fresh fish in the county.

SNAPE
The internationally renowned Snape Maltings, five miles from Aldeburgh, is one of the world’s leading centres of music. It offers inspiring concerts and festivals throughout the year, from the flagship Aldeburgh Festival in June to the folk, world and jazz of the Snape Proms throughout the month of August. For visitors, Snape Maltings brings together outstanding concerts and events alongside distinctive, independent shops, cafes, galleries, walks and river trips, all set against a breath-taking expanse of reeds, water and sky.

ALDEBURGH
A pretty coastal town on the river Alde in Suffolk which enjoys breathtaking views both seawards and following the River Alde inland. Possibly best known for having been the home of composer, Benjamin Britten and as the location of the internationally renowned Aldeburgh Festival. Aldeburgh remains an artistic and literary centre as well as a popular destination for holiday makers and sailors. Famous for many things - good food, great fish & chips, Aldeburgh Music, Maggi Hamblings' Scallop on the Beach being just a few.


Things to do




Historical

As well as Orford, mentioned above, there is a magnificent late 12th century castle in Framlingham. This small market town, boasting Ed Sheeran as one of its more famous offspring, is perfect for a stroll and lunch with a Town Trail marking all the primary sites of historic interest.

Leiston Abbey is made up of the mainly 14th-century remains of an abbey of Premonstratensian canons. Among Suffolk’s most impressive monastic ruins, with some spectacular architectural features.

Sutton Hoo, near Woodbridge, is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. At this beautiful estate, with views over the River Deben, walk around the ancient burial mounds, learn about ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and visit the estate’s Edwardian house.

Beaches

Suffolk has a tremendous coastline, stretching down from Norfolk in the north, through Lowestoft and down to Felixstowe and Shotley in the south, featuring sandy cliffs, dunes, bays and creeks. Covering a stretch of approximately 40 miles, Suffolk boasts several well-managed, award-winning beaches. Possibly best known, due to its sandy beach, multicoloured beach huts and pier is Southwold, which ranked in the top six of the UK’s best beaches in a Sunday Times travel supplement.

Stately Homes

Helmingham Hall’s gardens are perhaps its most spectacular feature, designed and maintained by the award-winning Lady Xa Tollemache, whose family have lived here since the 1480s. The Hall itself is a perfect example of a courtyard manor house; its four sides are surrounded by a moat, and every night Helmingham’s two draw bridges are raised, as they have been since 1510, leaving the hall an island.

You’ll find Somerleyton Hall in the heart of the Suffolk Broads, amongst swathes of parkland peppered with thatched cottages and the occasional windmill. Though its history dates back to the Viking invasion of East Anglia, this opulent hall is largely the work of two great Victorians and it is now one of Britain’s most well-preserved stately homes and gardens.

Kentwell Hall is one of Suffolk’s most unusual stately homes. A moated Tudor mansion full of surprises and a beautifully preserved interior. Explore it and you might stumble across a castle made of yew trees, a galleon, a two-dimensional maze, rare farm animals, and even some real-life Tudors going about their business. A great day out.

At Dunwich and Minsmere, within a few minutes’ walk of the beach, are woodland and heath known for its birdlife and natural beauty.
