Suffolk Top 50 Challenge – The story so far…

Southwold
I set myself the Suffolk Top 50 Challenge just over 6 months ago. I am now a third of the way through the list with 17 places visited so far and I am finding its a great way to explore Suffolk! If you are looking for a fun challenge or just find yourself with some free time and are wondering what to do why don't you have a look at the Suffolk Top 50 list to see if anything catches your eye?...

Why a Suffolk Explorer Guide is a Great Way to Discover Orford

Orford Suffolk
Looking to discover Orford? Well it is one of those places that has a lot more to it than you first think! I have been many times this year and often take a leisurely walk around the town just to enjoy the pretty surroundings. The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Orford Explorer Guide is an excellent way to discover Orford if you have an hour or two spare and fancy going for a walk. A number of dif...

As you walk around the village you can't help but be astounded at all the different houses and buildings that line the stre...

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...

The Suffolk Punch

Suffolk Punch Horse
When I moved to Suffolk, I had lots to learn. Having never visited the county before I remember overhearing someone talking about the 'Suffolk punch' and thinking it was some sort of local boxing term! 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...

Exploring Sutton Hoo

Sutton Hoo
Who would have thought mounds could be so interesting!  Sutton Hoo is set in a wonderful landscape and the mounds are just the start of the story..... On arrival at Sutton Hoo it's easy to get swept up in the excellent 'visitor attraction' facilities before actually venturing outside to see the wonderful landscape where the story begins. It was shortly before the Second World War that Ed...

Debach Airfield Museum

The Operations Room, Debach Airfield Control Tower
It's funny how one of the best days out I have had so far this year is one I stumbled upon by accident! That's exactly what happened at Debach Airfield Museum. On my way to Ipswich I came across an eye-catching sign that made me think.....ooohh I will pop in there on my way back, which is exactly what I did! Not really knowing what to expect, I turned off at the sign and found myself headin...

Southwold Sailors’ Reading Room

Exterior of Southwold Sailors' Reading Room
Southwold Sailors' Reading Room I was intrigued as to why the Southwold Sailors' Reading Room made it into Suffolk's top 50 and today I was going to find out why. Built in 1864 in memory of Captain Rayley by his wife, the reading room was intended to provide a place for sailors and fishermen to meet, chat and spend time. It is still being used as a reading room today in addition to being a museum...

Moyse’s Hall Museum

lego 089
I just love it if I can go into a museum and see something that makes me say "That's so cool!" This is what happened to me when I unexpectedly found myself in Moyse's Hall Museum, Bury St Edmunds. I have walked past the museum many a time when out and about in Bury. To be honest I'm not really a museum person so when walking past Moyse's Hall in the past, I have just glanced and admired the bui...
