Beautiful countryside, bustling market towns and stunning coastline make Suffolk a great place to live and work.
Ipswich is one of England’s oldest towns, located on the estuary of the River Orwell, and has recently seen a major redevelopment of its waterfront – with its modern bars, restaurants and dockside flats.
The picturesque market town of Bury St Edmunds also has lots to offer, with ruins of its medieval abbey, St Edmundsbury Cathedral, and an array of independent shops, pubs and restaurants.
Festivals and shows are part of the county’s culture – with Latitude, the Aldeburgh Festival and FolkEast among the best known. The annual Suffolk Show, celebrating agricultural and farming life, draws visitors from all over East Anglia and beyond.
The Suffolk coast and countryside offers lots to see and do, including historical landmarks, river trips, wildlife centres and golf courses. Visit Orford’s iconic lighthouse, the Tide Mill in Woodbridge, or take a rowboat through Constable Country on the magnificent River Stour, flowing into the neighbouring county of Essex.
