Spring is finally here, which means the sun is starting to come out and we’re getting ready for an Easter break. Some of us are fortunate enough to have some time off over the Easter period, so we’ve created a list of fun things you can do to make the most out of your break.
National Trust buildings
Suffolk is bursting with beautiful National Trust buildings; the only question is which one will you visit first? You really are spoilt for choice, but here are a few of our favourites:
- Thorington Hall: packed with history and bags of charm, turn the clock back 500 years and stay in one of Suffolk’s oldest buildings.
- Dunwich Heath and Beach: a precious landscape on the Suffolk coast, enjoy a spot of bird watching and more.
- Ickworth House: explore this estate and its great history. Here there’s so much to do, you’ll want to come back again and again.
The home of live music in East Anglia! This award-winning venue in Bury St Edmunds is known for it’s musical excellence, being the host of a range of live music and events: from classical concerts to rock, pop, jazz, country and folk, plus comedy and dance performances.
Leiston Long Shop Museum
Nearby Snape, Aldeburgh and RSPB Minsmere, this museum offers inspiring stories, fun for families, and feats of engineering and gorgeous designs – it’s a true icon of industrial revolution Suffolk. This is a great place to spend a day out in with your family.
Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm
Another day out for the family, Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm is in the middle of Suffolk and is a small livestock farm breeding farm of animals that were once common but are now very rare.
It’s a great time to bring your whole family to the farm to meet the piglets, feed the goats and let the kids loose in the play area whilst you settle into the calm surroundings with a piece of homemade cake or a cream tea.
