Suffolk: A Countryside County Bursting with Cultural Experiences

Culture abounds in this county bounded by cliffs and beaches and a great way to see it all is to rent a Suffolk holiday cottage. It is the home of the world-famous Aldeburgh Festival at Snape Maltings Concert Hall, the Aldeburgh Literary Spring Festival, and the beautifully preserved Theatre Royal in Bury St. Edmunds. Bury grew up round the shrine of St.Edmund, the East Anglian king martyred by the Danes in the 9th century (in case you were wondering), but today is a lovely old market town, still a-bustle with many local shps and cafes and a good base for a self-catering holiday exploring Suffolk's idyllic countryside and country houses.

You can still compare the actual settings of some of Thomas Gainsborough's most famous paintings, still to be seen around his home town of Sudbury, and the art gallery in his house. And,similarly, John Constable's famous views of Flatford and Dedham are still recognizable. Dedham is also the birth-place of Sir Alfred Munnings, whose famous Victorian animal paintings can be seen there.
