One of the best things to do on holiday is visit a food festival, letting you indulge in the local cuisine that the area is known for, and even take some home to enjoy afterwards! Suffolk is known as “The Foodie County”, meaning Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival is not to be missed. It’s a two-day extravaganza of everything culinary, including foraging trips, cookery courses, and, of course, a host of local dishes for you to try, each filling the air with their own unique aroma. Whether you’re looking to pick up some bread or pasta-making skills from the festival experts, or want to expand your palette with local beers and ciders, watch out for this wonderful event every September.
The beautiful beaches of Southwold attract thousands of people every year, giving you the perfect opportunity to relax with serene views from the town’s piers along the shoreline. As the sun goes down, tuck into some fish and chips while enjoying the fresh sea air. A rich history of beer brewing is seen throughout the town, as Adnams beer is found on restaurant tables and at the pub bars across Southwold. Adnams beer has been brewed since 1872 and has become part of the town’s identity, meaning no trip is complete without sampling a taste. The perfect time to grab one is when visiting the brewery itself – take a tour behind the scenes to see how award-winning local beers and spirits are made, and you can even have a go at making your own gin.
