From the wetland Broads to the stunning Heritage Coast, Suffolk is packed with natural attractions and offers a rich heritage, history and culture, lots of family fun and all kinds of activities.
Long, sandy beaches fringe Suffolk's coast - think sweeping blue skies, flip-flops and sandcastles, al fresco dining and traditional resorts such as Southwold, Aldeburgh, Dunwich Heath, Snape and Felixstowe oozing timeless appeal. Sea-based activities vary from fishing trips and sailing to fast-paced rides on RIBs, plus bracing walks along the coastal path.Suffolk's two AONBs promise spectacular scenery, wonderful wildlife, flora and fauna and plenty of outdoor pursuits. Cycle routes range from quiet country lanes to free-wheeling along off-road forest trails; there are miles of bridleways and countless opportunities for walking, from leisurely strolls in Thetford Forest Park and Needham Lake Nature Reserve to serious rambles along Suffolk's inspiring shoreline.
