What's On in Suffolk this Half Term

Summer is well on it’s way but before the rush of the summer holidays you can treat yourself to a break during the May Half Term. Suffolk always has lots to do and see, whatever the weather, so here are some tips for what you can get up on on your getaway.

Sun, Sand and SeaSuffolk has a 50 mile stretch of Heritage Coast and there’s no better time than the May Half Term to get exploring the beautiful Suffolk sights. The coastal towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold show be at the top of your list for places to visit. Tuck into fish and chips and treat yourself to ice creams as you wander along the high streets and charming beach fronts of these towns. Crabbing at Walberswick is a must, and you can pop into The Anchor pub for a spot of lunch.

WildlifeRSPB Minsmere is a top destination for bird wildlife enthusiasts throughout the year. As the weather starts to noticeably improve, you’ll find lots of activities will be hosted at the reserve to interest yourself and the kids. Try out pond dipping, bird watching for beginners or simply walk around the reserve to soak up the beauty of this unique habitat. Home to otters, bitterns, avocets and more, be sure to remember your binoculars to see what you can spot. 

Rendlesham ForestSee if you can have an alien encounter on the UFO Trail in Rendlesham Trail. The 3 mile trail has silver arrows to navigate you through the forest with posts which feature mysterious symbols. If you pick up an Alien Trail Leaflet from the Forest Office you can uncover the mystery of what these symbols mean. With a children’s play area, cycling routes and walking trails to enjoy, Rendlesham Forest is a great stop this May Half Term.

For the KidsHalf Term means fun for the kids, and there are loads of fab places for families to do just that in Suffolk. Head over to Pleasurewood Hills if you’re after some thrills, and for animal encounters stop by Easton Farm Park or Banham Zoo. The Suffolk Owl Sanctuary is also a great place to see birds of prey and watch flying demonstrations. 

With so much to do, you might not be able to fit it all into a week! Book you May Half Term break with Suffolk Cottage Holidays.
