Lots of Surprises at Old Jet Market

Old Jet Market
My trip this weekend to Old Jet Market held lots of surprises, which is why I love living in Suffolk! Old Jet Market is quite unique. Its not necessarily the market itself (which was great by the way), it was more the location that was the biggest surprise for me. This monthly market is held in and around an old aircraft hanger at Bentwaters, an old airfield in Rendlesham. Why I enjoyed my vis...

Aldeburgh fish and chips
I love my visits to Aldeburgh and I was really pleased to see "Fish and chips at Aldeburgh" in the Suffolk's Top 50 list that I am working my way through!

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...

Vintage Market in the Sunshine

vintage market
You really can't beat a vintage market stroll at Snape Maltings in the sunshine! Its such a relaxing thing to do, in beautiful surroundings with the added bonus of having the 'smile' factor as you see lots of things for sale that you remember from your childhood. I often realise I'm smiling while I look around the stalls, taking a trip down memory lane! On Sunday the vintage market was great...

Newmarket Horseshoe Trail

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 soon as I arrived in Newmarket, my first stop was the tourist information Centre (TIC). I'm a big fan of TIC's and always seek them out if a town has one! As well as being fantastic for getting information about a place, you also sometimes speak to people with insi...
