Enter a magical winter wonderland in Suffolk

Lavenham and Long Melford, Suffolk

Get into the Christmas spirit with a visit to a Christmas Fair in medieval Lavenham and a Dickensian Christmas at a Tudor manor in Long Melford.

Suffolk is a destination for all seasons but winter is when the stunning architecture found in its medieval villages and Georgian-fronted towns really sparkle. Medieval Lavenham, with over 300 buildings of historic interest and crooked, half-timbered houses leaning merrily over the streets, is the perfect backdrop for the Lavenham Christmas Fair which takes place 4th - 6th December 2015.

Over 100 years ago, it was written of Kentwell Hall that it was "...a little great house of magical beauty...” and this description still fits the 500 year old Tudor manor perfectly. Home of historic re-creations throughout the year, Kentwell Hall in Long Melford takes on a Victorian theme for the annual Dickensian Christmas at Kentwell from the 4th - 6th December 2015.
