A real touring opportunity to discover Suffolk’s green and pleasant lands even along the haunting heritage coast. In Debenham, village verges vie with overhanging houses and antique shops; a white post mill sits proudly on Saxtead Green; Framlingham Castle looks out across smart college lawns; at Southwold, once ravaged by fire, green swathes now space out the houses by Gun Hill; Orford castle perches on the greenest mound and at Sutton Hoo mysterious bumps mark bygone burials close to acres of turf fields. Lavenham and the great greens of Long Melford are certainly jewels in Suffolk’s crown, but the greatest emerald perhaps has to be Constable Country with its immortalised water meadows and Stour Valley slopes.

Accommodation

Near Needham Market, in Framlingham, in Southwold, in Aldeburgh, near Woodbridge, in Bildeston (or Hadleigh) and in Lavenham.

Explore all the highlights of oh-so-English Suffolk and take a trip through history . The treasures of the Sutton Hoo ship burial unearth the Dark Ages; medieval merchants left leaning half-timbered legacies like Lavenham; in the 18th century the special Suffolk light and the quintessentially Englishness of the Stour Valley gave the painter, John Constable his inspiration. Suffolk is home to mighty castles and maritime tales, haunting coastlines which inspired PD James and rivers immortalised by Sir Arthur Ransome – history is all around and so much more immediate when enjoyed gently and respectfully from the saddle of your bike .
