Or maybe you'd prefer to be beside the seaside? Suffolk offers plenty of choice, such as Aldeburgh which is located 25 miles away. Famed for its delicious fish and chips, the working fishing town will allow you to sample catch straight from the sea. It also boasts a Blue Flag beach and hosts the annual Aldeburgh Festival.
Another popular Suffolk seaside down is Felixstowe, and along with traditional beach huts it offers many amusements and attractions such as adventure golf and a miniature train, making it the perfect choice for families with kids. Lowestoft is a further option and this also boasts two Blue Flag beaches.
If you're looking for more of a historical day out, Woodbridge was a settlement for more than 1,000 years and a museum in the town will educate you all about the history. Bury St Edmunds is another option and in this market town you will be able to admire the medieval architecture, Georgian squares and garden of an 11th century abbey.
