Town and city breaks in Suffolk
Bury St Edmunds, always a worth a visit, particularly for keen historians, was the burial site of King Edmund, who was slain by the Danes in the Ninth Century AD. It is also said to be the site of numerous miracles and mysterious goings-on after the figurehead's death. There are plenty of landmarks bookmarking this bygone era as well as many later ruins such as an abbey (and its beautiful gardens) and ancient textile buildings. For other historical settlements, book a hotel in Suffolk near Ipswich, the county town. Complete with a beautiful, colourful dock where the seagulls squawk and the smell of freshly-caught fish clears the airways, Ispwich has plenty on offer.

Theatres and Museums are well represented, the New Wolsey Theatre, perhaps the most famous, offering a diverse of productions for all ages.

A countryside walk here is like nowhere else and the fresh aroma of nature and the bracing breeze is sure to wake up the most tired of trekkers. Beautiful, traditional, country villages are dotted throughout the rolling hills, providing a bit of contrast to the endless green.
