Living in Suffolk

What’s not to love about Suffolk? It has breathtaking coastlines, as well as the famous towns of Southwold and Aldeburgh at your doorstep. 

Dedham Vale, home to the River Stour valley, is known as Constable Country. It is the location of the well-known painting ‘The Hay Wain’ by local 19th-century artist John Constable.

Suffolk is surrounded by picturesque rural villages and historic market towns, such as Long Melford, Lavenham (voted the best-preserved mediaeval village in the UK), Stoke By Nayland, Kersey and Hadleigh. The wool industry in this region made it one of the wealthiest regions in England in the Middle Ages. 

As it is known to locals, Bury is a small but vibrant traditional Suffolk market town that hides a surprisingly contemporary attitude and a vibrant café culture. In addition to the remains of the 11th-century Abbey, the area is dotted with pretty gardens and a dramatic gate providing access to a medieval network of streets lined with timber-framed buildings.

One of East Anglia’s best-kept secrets, Hadleigh, is near excellent transport links and was named ‘one of the best places to live in the Sunday Times in 2018. Hadleigh is a popular town on the Essex and Suffolk border, located just 10 miles from Ipswich, 15 miles from Colchester, and approximately 70 miles from London. A wealth of independent shops line the main High Street, contributing to the town’s unique character.


The Suffolk region offers a wide range of highly regarded junior, primary and secondary schools.
