Why Felixstowe Pier is a Great Place for Some ‘Time Out’!

Felixstowe Pier
Have you been to the new Felixstowe Pier yet? I only really discovered Felixstowe a couple of years ago and like many people, if off to the seaside I would automatically think of places like Aldeburgh and Southwold.

I've found many places in Suffolk that look really small from the outside so you feel a bit reluctant to go inside but if you take the plunge and go for it you usually find its much larger than you think with lots of wonderful things to discover. The Lettering Arts Centre is classi...

Orwell Lady
The first time I 'met' Orwell Lady was earlier this year when I attended a fabulous boat open day at Ipswich Waterfront.

Intrigued at how different Suffolk would look from the river,  the opportunity of joining one of the Orwell Lady sightseeing cruis...

3 Great Reasons to Visit Art on the Prom

Art on the Prom
Suffolk is full of events all year round and there really is something to suit everybody. For me, Art on the Prom is way up the top for a great day out and one I always visit if I can. With so many events to choose from and many of them repeated each year there is the danger that you will do as I've done in the past, put it in your diary then something else crops up and you say - "Oh well I...
