Things to do in Suffolk

There are so many things to do in Suffolk you will be spoilt for choice! I have put together favourites of mine and past guests to make a comprehensive collection of things to do and see all under "Saxon's Blog - A little bird told me..."

Choose from castles, houses & gardens, festivals of food, drink & music to wildlife photography, or shopping and antiques.

Suffolk has it all and is waiting for you to discover your favourites - leaving you counting down the days before you can come back and explore more!
