Suffolk is a county on Britain's east coast. It is mostly flat, with very few hills, making it the perfect place for growing crops. But despite this sleepy atmosphere, with its quiet farmland and calm shoreline, Suffolk has a long and fascinating history.
Pet Friendly Much of Suffolk is rural, making it an ideal place to enjoy with your dog. Not only are there beaches, but also forest, heathland and countryside to explore. Many of the local inns and pubs are dog friendly.
Child Friendly Suffolk has plenty for children, including a sandy beach (Southwold) and a long coastline to enjoy. Inland, you will find nature reserves and plenty of historic buildings and castles to explore.
