Taste the finest fish and chips as the tide creeps in at Aldeburgh or explore Southwold 's famous Pier. Hang out at a local ale house for an Adnams best. Stand on the spot where Constable visualised his paintings. Or hear the thunderous last furlong at Newmarket - the historic home of horse-racing.
Ipswich is England's oldest continuously settled Anglo-Saxon town. Discover a Tudor Christchurch Mansion and the redeveloped waterfront with its marina. The ancient market town of Framlingham is home to a superb 12th century castle and in the west sits Bury St Edmunds, an award-winning ancient town and gardens with Britain's smallest pub and cathedral. Suffolk Wool towns Lavenham (England's best preserved medieval town), Long Melford (famed for antiques) and Sudbury (birthplace of artist Thomas Gainsborough) offer a magical insight to medieval Britain.
