The lost city of Dunwich…
Lying on the Suffolk coast, the sleepy village of Dunwich used to be a bustling seaport and the capital of East Anglia. But much of it was lost to the sea due to coastal erosion in the 19th century.
Dunwich Museum charts the history of the village through the centuries, from the Roman era to the present day, and shows what it was like at the height of its powers in the 13th century.
Go birdwatching at RSPB Minsmere
Twitchers flock to Dunwich Heath and the RSPB site at Minsmere, just a short drive from Dunwich. Here you can spend time spotting some of the UK’s rarest birds such as avocets and bitterns, along with other wildlife including otters, lizards and red deer.
Events are held throughout the year too, from guided walks and birdbox building workshops to 4x4 safaris and stargazing.
Enjoy seaside traditions in Southwold
With its sandy beach and famous beach hut-lined promenade, this quintessentially English seaside town offers a grand day out. Have a go on the 2p amusements at Southwold Pier, and don’t miss the cheeky Water Clock, which causes a few sniggers every 30 minutes. Adnams Brewery is another popular attraction - take a tour to discover how its award-winning beers and spirits are created, and even make your own gin.
