Suffolk

With a beautiful coastline dotted with family holiday resorts and delightful undulating countryside sprinkled with historic towns and charming villages, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks in Suffolk. Read More...

Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on one of our caravan holidays in Suffolk.

1. Have a laugh at the Under the Pier Show
The Under the Pier Show is an amusement arcade with a difference. It is the work of inventor Tim Hunkin, who has hand-built most of the quirky arcade-style machines that feature within the attraction on Southwold Pier. Despite being very modern, it has a wonderfully nostalgic feel to it and will make you laugh.

2. Be enchanted by the magic of Thorepness
If ever there was a village that deserved to be called ‘fantastic’, it is Thorpeness. Created by Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie it has remained unspoilt since it was built on the Suffolk coast in the 1920s. Ogilvie’s idea was to create the ideal holiday village ‘for people who want to experience life as it was when England was Merrie England.’ The House in the Clouds is one of the country’s most famous follies, originally the village’s water tower disguised as an overgrown house.

3. Come face to face with your ancestors at Sutton Hoo
This site, with far-reaching views over the river Deben, is home to one of the greatest archaeological discoveries of all time. Walk around the ancient burial mounds and discover the incredible story of the ship burial of an Anglo-Saxon king and his treasured possessions. Come face to face with your ancestors and explore an award-winning exhibition, the full-size reconstruction of the burial chamber, stunning replica treasures and original finds from one of the mounds, including a prince’s sword.

4. Prepare a feast at Orford
Orford is known as a foodie paradise. On Saturdays there is a weekly food market in the town hall in the market square where locals sell their produce. There are also not one but two smokeries in Orford. Richardson Smokehouse, just off the market square, specialises in fish and cheese, and Pinneys specialises in oysters.

5. Crabbing at Walberswick
Crabbing is a fun way to spend an afternoon. There are plenty of places to do it along the coast, but none better than in Walberswick. Tucked away across the River Blyth from Southwold, the busy harbour with its dinghies, fishing boats, cruisers and yachts has a timeless quality. Local shops sell buckets, baits and lines. The village is famous for its annual crabbing competition held every August. The person who catches the single heaviest crab within a period of 90 minutes is declared the winner.

6. Get closer to nature at Minsmere
Minsmere is one of the RSPB’s most famous nature reserves. It has been an RSPB reserve for over 50 years and pioneered the use of observation hides and management of wetland areas to enable visitors to see a sample of the huge range of birds that pass along the Suffolk coast. However, it is more than just a birdwatchers’ site. There is a wide network of paths and trails through heath, woodland and sand dunes.

7. Cycle the Painters’ Trail
Painters’ Trail passes through the picturesque and historic Dedham Vale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Take in the rolling lowland countryside and locations that were made famous by local artists, such as Constable, Munnings and Gainsborough in what, for many, is the quintessential English rural landscape.

8. Boating on the Broads
Relax and enjoy a peaceful day out on the Norfolk Broads. The southern-most part of the Broads lies inside Suffolk, and Beccles, an historic market town on the River Waveney, is a good departure point. A river port since medieval times, it is now a popular stop for pleasure craft with its pretty riverfront bordered by Georgian gardens sloping down to the water’s edge and a quayside.

9. Bet on a racing certainty at Newmarket
Newmarket is famous throughout the world as the home of horseracing. As well as watching the horses and jockeys training on the gallops at nearby Warren Hill, the National Horseracing Museum offers behind the scene tours of working stable yards.

10. Head into the forest at Thetford
Thetford Forest, just over the border in Norfolk, is Britain’s largest lowland pine forest offering a range of activities from gentle walks and cycle paths to the adrenaline pumping Go Ape, a high-wire forest adventure course of rope bridges, Tarzan swings and zip wires up to 15 metres high in the trees, and a challenging 10-mile Black Run for mountain bikers.
