Suffolk

Swanky coastal towns with casual boutiques, microbreweries and music festivals and landscapes straight from Constable and Gainsborough paintings. This is a county to see and be seen. If Newmarket has given you the horsey bug, saddle up to explore heaths and farmland on miles of bridleways. Kids love Suffolk for the wildlife parks where lions and zebra make themselves at home in the East Anglia countryside. Great halls hung with masterpieces, guildhalls and windmills make great browsing for rainy days. Hire a pastel-coloured beach hut for exhilarating days on the North Sea coast.
