Popular Locations in Suffolk

Bury St Edmunds

Proudly containing the only cathedral in Suffolk, Bury St Edmunds might also be the most beautiful town within the county. Packed with history from numerous periods, many of the buildings are even older than they look, due to the old timber framing being bricked over in the 1700s. We’d recommend visiting St Edmundsbury Cathedral, the ruined Bury St Edmunds Abbey and the fabulous Theatre Royal.

Ipswich

Found in Suffolk, Ipswich regularly vies for the coveted title of the oldest town in England. Its history dates all the way back to the 600s when a Saxon settlement began to take shape around the docks. Throughout the middle ages, Ipswich was a key port for trade with the rest of Europe. Today, the waterside area remains the most popular part of Ipswich, with old warehouses transformed into trendy apartments, restaurants, shops and galleries.

Felixstowe

What’s so interesting about Felixstowe is how stark the contrast is between the two sides of the town. In the south you’ll find the largest container port in the UK, receiving 3,000 gigantic cargo ships every year. Meanwhile, the northern side of the town sees these docks give way to lovely pebble beaches and an Edwardian coastal town. Felixstowe Pier is everything you’d expect from a seaside town, complete with an amusement arcade.
