Going on holiday in Suffolk

Suffolk is a romantic, timeless region that makes a perfect year-round retreat. The weather is at its warmest through summer, particularly from July to August. The Suffolk coast, in particular, can become busy during school holidays (late July to August). Accommodation prices tend to rise during this period too, and there are a wealth of outdoor festivals. To avoid the crowds, June and September see fine weather. Spring and autumn can also be delightful; just prepare for occasional rain. While winter is dark, cold and breezy, the countryside takes on an ethereal charm and market towns burst with festivity.

Your best hotel in Suffolk: how to get there and make your booking

How to get to Suffolk

Suffolk is an easily accessible corner of England with good transport links to London, Cambridge and other major cities. Foreign arrivals will find London the easiest access point by air, followed by road or rail connections to Suffolk. While the closest airport is Norwich, it provides only limited flights to Amsterdam. Many of Suffolk’s major towns have quick rail links, but noted coastal regions like Aldeburgh and Southwold do not. As such, a car is recommended if you want to explore the county at your own pace. This will give you access to lavish country estates and chocolate-box villages.

The opinion of the Voyage Privé travel expert on Suffolk

Black Lion
Suffolk is an immensely historic region dotted with medieval villages and impressive estates. The region got its wealth from the wool trade, and you'll find plenty of gilded villages that burst with quintessential English charm. Suffolk hotels are the perfect way to explore this richly historic landscape, from bustling Bury St Edmunds to enchanting Lavenham. This history goes back through Tudor halls like Gainsborough to the great Saxon discoveries at Sutton Hoo.

Suffolk – genteel coastlines and scenic nature reserves

The Suffolk coastline is renowned for its preserved shores and genteel resorts like Southwold. The 50-mile Suffolk Coast AONB is a treat for avid walkers and sand searchers. While perfect for summertime dips and kayak excursions, the coast is also bursting with life. Head to Minsmere for bird-laden nature trails where you can spot the rare bittern. Another highlight is Orford Ness, a wildlife reserve with a mysterious military past.
