About Suffolk

There is something very English about Suffolk. Here you will find the quintessential English village. Along the river Stour south of Lavenham is 'Constable Country', home of England's most famous landscape painter and the subject of his glorious paintings which so poignantly captured rural English life. The Stour flows peacefully through a chalky valley with willow and poplar lining lush water-meadows, and walks between Sudbury and Flatford capture the essential 'Englishness' of the scenery.

Flatford is, of course, the location for one of Constable's most famous paintings and is now a major tourist attraction. Upstream at Sudbury is the birthplace of another great English painter, Thomas Gainsborough. The long distance route The Stour Valley Path follows the river all the way from Newmarket to Manningtree.

Suffolk is also home to several mediaeval wool towns, Lavenham being perhaps the most impressive example. Here fine timber houses, many now with a picturesque crookedness, demonstrate the wealth that wool brought to Suffolk in the middle ages. Clare, Hadleigh, Lavenham and Long Melford all have important historic buildings and are worth exploring and, combined with a country walk in the local vicinity, can make a great day out. There are also many small attractive villages which make good bases for planning a walk, and many are included in the guides below.

Music across Suffolk has great variation. The south of the county draws on the classical, jazz and party band influences of London, but the northern part, geographically remote draws on the folk scene of Cambridgeshire.
