Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum

Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum
It was my Suffolk's Top 50 Challenge that brought me to the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum.

I've had some great days out and discovered lots of interesting things on this challenge. Here's a quick round up of what you can expect on a visit to Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum at F...

Well I'm finding that each time I visit a place, I see something I haven't noticed before and always learn something new, then find myself planning to comeback to exp...

Jockey Club Rooms Newmarket
When I discovered the Newmarket Horseshoe Trail it seemed the perfect way of exploring a town I had never visited before.

As well as being fantastic for getting information about a place, you also sometimes speak to people with insi...

British Museum
Exploring the British Museum There were 3 reasons I decided to visit the British Museum; It is the most visited tourist attraction in the UK and having studied visitor attractions during my tourism degree it seemed ridiculous that I had never been! I wanted to find out if it was as was as good as the visitor numbers seemed to suggest. It was perfect timing - having arranged to meet a frie...

Woodbridge Tide Mill

Tide Mill Woodbridge
Woodbridge Tide Mill My visit to the Woodbridge Tide Mill was on a particularly damp and drizzly day, but actually once inside, the weather didn't matter so much as I had lots to see and keep me busy whilst sheltering from the rain! I have often glanced at the Tide Mill and to be honest if it wasn't on the Suffolk's Top 50 I probably wouldn't have visited...that's why I love my #Suffolkt...

I soon realised that of course it's not.... the Suffolk Punch is the most wonderful type of horse! The breed was developed for farm work, however as machinery started to take over numbers dec...
