The magnificent 12th Century castle is famous for having housed Mary Tudor and was deeply involved with England's Royal History. It also houses the fascinating Lanman Museum which has some remarkable pieces on show and is packed with information about Framlingham's checkered history. Close by is Easton Farm Park, offering great days out for all the family. We also have Parham Airfield Museum just outside Framlingham, and Benwaters Cold War Museum near Woodbridge, and of course is a perfect location from which to visit Sutton Hoo, one of Britain's best preserved Saxon Villages.
There is a market on Tuesdays and Saturdays where local fishmongers, butchers, bakers and greengrocers sell their fresh produce. Come in October and be part of The Great Framlingham Sausage Festival, seen here is 'the Human Fruit Machine' one of the many attractions. Monday mornings there is a market and auction house at Campsea Ashe. Auction lots vary from antiques and bric-a-brac, to live poultry and vegetables. Campsea Ashe also boasts our nearest main-line train station with services running to Lowestoft, Saxmundham and Ipswich where a connecting train will take you to Liverpool Street.
If you like walking, there are plenty of opportunities, we have the Town Trail or there are many footpaths in and around the town affording stunning views of the Suffolk Countryside. A walk around the Castle Mere is a must but wear wellies if it's winter. Suffolk has some truly beautiful countryside as Turner and Constable are testament to.
We are near 'The Suffolk Heritage Coast' an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and we are only 14 miles from Aldeburgh and 20 miles from Southwold both of which have beaches, fish & chips and all the beauty of this coastline to enjoy. Minsmere Bird Sanctuary is a must and is simply stunning, Orford has it's own Castle and is home to the famous Pinney's Smokehouse, an excellent place for lunch.
