Visit Suffolk for the quintessentially English experience. Immerse yourself in live music festivals, swanky coastal towns, and local microbreweries producing some of the best beer in the world. Suffolk is packed to the brim with adventure; explore safari parks where you can see lions and zebra roaming free, or rent a pastel beach hut on the North Sea and enjoy all that an English seaside holiday has to offer. If it’s history you’re after, then explore Bury St Edmunds and its historical architecture before enjoying one of those local beers in Britain’s smallest pub.
