Suffolk is all geared up for the start of the summer season. Sleepy towns and villages seem to wake up at this time of year after a mellow start to the holiday season at Easter. And boy do we know how to wake up! Festivals, fairs, and markets are just the tip of the ice-cream when it comes to June.
In fact, June is so busy we gave it its own section! June is a fantastic time of year to book your holiday in Suffolk. Find our list of events in and around Suffolk below...
