Suffolk has lots of great activities to enjoy all year-round and the summer is perfect for getting out and about and exploring this wonderful county. When staying in our Suffolk holiday lodges over the last few weeks of summer, spend each day having tonnes of fun with the family.
Learn some history of Suffolk and visit any of the wonderful castles and other historical sites there are across the county. It is not just the maze of rooms and views from the castles, but also the grounds surrounding the buildings that are worth exploring. Many of the castles and sites are run from the National Trust or English Heritage, so it is definitely worthwhile if you are a member.
In the event of a rainy day, visit some of the museums Suffolk has to offer. There is the Green King Brewery and Museum in Bury St Edmunds, Museum of East Anglian Life at Stowmarket, and the National Horseracing Museum and Newmarket. A great museum to visit on a fair weather day is the West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village, which is also an archaeological site and has lots of workshops to enjoy.
If you are eating out in Suffolk you are spoilt for choice about where to go, and are bound to build up an appetite for the delicious food you can try. Head to the coastal villages to sample some delicious seafood, freshly caught on the day, or try a yummy pub lunch at any of the friendly pubs across the county. And if you are having a day on the beach, fish and chips have to be on the menu!
Music, theatre and art
When staying at our holiday lodges you can enjoy an array of music events, theatre and art exhibitions throughout the year. Suffolk is a major source of creativity and there are various art galleries throughout the country where you can learn about new artists, buy art work, try some workshops as well as enjoy the latest exhibition.
Gardens and Parks
Suffolk is home to many beautiful gardens and parks, as you would expect from a rural county with an agricultural history. You can discover some famous gardens here on a day out, like Helmingham Hall, Langham Hall Walled Garden, Christchurch Park and Somerleyton Hall. There are hundreds of acres to walk through, from lovingly cultivated gardens to woodland trails.
