Situated on England’s east coast, Suffolk is an East Anglian county with significant historical interest, 50 miles of beautiful beaches, and charming villages.
It borders Norfolk to the north, with which it shares the rivers and lakes that constitute The Broads, Cambridgeshire to the west, and Essex to the south. Flanked by the North Sea to its east, Suffolk boasts many beaches, including Southwold and Dunwich Heath and Beach. In fact, the Suffolk Coast and Heaths are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Suffolk is an ideal location for a family staycation. It’s within easy reach of London, and its combination of attractions and natural features means that you can do as much or as little as you like. Lounge on the beach at Walberswick, or battle dragons around the ruins of Framlingham Castle. Grab a surfboard at Lowestoft, immerse the kids in Anglo-Saxon history at Sutton Hoo, catch a fish at Suffolk Water Park, visit the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum, or climb the trees at Go Ape in Thetford.
Whatever your family’s preference, there are so many things to do in Suffolk. You may even be lucky enough to grab tickets to Latitude, a firm family favourite of a festival that’s held over July, hosting comedians, music acts, fairground rides, and more.
