Visit Suffolk

Why visit the Suffolk Coast?

Welcome to the Visit Suffolk Coast website, providing you with a comprehensive guide to the area which will help you get the most out of your visit to Suffolk.

This film, with commentary by Humphrey Burton, Aldeburgh Music Club’s President, provides an insight into the ongoing influence of place on man, and man on place; celebrating the fact that Britten’s legacy to the people living in and visiting Aldeburgh and the Suffolk coast remains as strong today as it ever did. A wonderful mix of family fun, music and drama, fine eating and drinking, sailing and shopping - something for everyone in the friendliest atmosphere you'll wish to find on the Suffolk Heritage Coast. An intimate and friendly coastal town with a fine castle keep and a bustling quay from which one can take lovely boat trips on the Alde river to Aldeburgh and Shingle Street. Smokeries famous for smoked salmon, ham hocks and not to mention Butley oysters. Home of the Adnams brewery, famous lighthouse and beach huts. Splendid art galleries, fine shops and pubs and the Blackshore harbourside for extremely fresh fish and the ferry across the River Blyth to Walberswick. The ancient working Tide Mill is just one of the fascinating sites to see especially when the grinding wheels are in action. Up in the town there is Buttrum's Mill, the tallest surviving windmill in Suffolk. Take time to look in St Mary's church and find the tomb of the town's wealthiest benefactor, Sir Thomas Seckford.

Orford: The Wallace Collection & Clark

On your Saturday morning in Orford, do go to the Country Market in the Town Hall iand take the time to look at the three oil paintings on the left-hand side wall. For they show the one of the finest shooting parties in England given at the Sudbourne Hall Estate, once owned by Sir Kenneth Clark, famed Lord Clark of Civilisation and director of the National Gallery in the 1930s and 40s who believed Orford and surrounds to provide ‘the best kind of scenery for a landscape painter’.
