There are many great events and activities that have been planned for this year’s Suffolk Day and many people in the area are looking forward to an event that has been long overdue. This will be the inaugural Suffolk Day, which is strange considering places like Yorkshire have had similar events for more than 40 years already.
Suffolk is one of the best places to live, work and play in and many people who’ve grown up around these parts or even those who moved here later in life will tell you the same. In fact, on Yorkshire resident boldly stated that he couldn’t imagine living his life anywhere else because this was the one place that had anything he could want.
The county’s coastline is one of the features for which it is most famous for and has been described as one of the best you’ll find anywhere whether it’s in Felixstowe or Lowestoft. One of the best spots from which to see the county’s coastline is from the top of the Martello Tower. From this point, you’ll be able to see the county for miles around.
You’ll have the Felixstowe Port on one side and you should be able to see the tall cranes at work and in the distance, to your other side, you should be able to catch a glimpse of Lighthouse at Southwold.
The resorts are some of the busiest spots within the county and there is no shortage of fun things to do there. Every year, people come in droves to Lowestoft and Felixstowe resorts and upmarket towns such as Southwold and Aldeburgh also pull their fair share of visitors. However, it’s not just the big locations that stand out. Even smaller locations such as Shingle Street provide visitors with a fascinating experience with this street, in particular, being well known for its ‘town-during-the-war’ vibe. There is an amazing castle to explore at Orford and you can even pass by Minsmere to see the nature reserve there or head out to the hidden beach at Covehithe.
But beyond the natural beauty, there is still much to celebrate about this county. For years, this was one of the country’s main breadbaskets and even to this day, agriculture is still an important part of the county. Several major businesses can also be found here including BT and the ever-busy Felixstowe Port.
