Where better to treat your Dad to a day out than The Suffolk Coast! These gift experiences are guaranteed to show Dad how much you care...
1. Sports Car Hire from Open Top Touring
Dad can cruise The Suffolk Coast in style in one of the cars on offer from Open Top Touring. Book the Classic and Sports Car Experience and let him choose his favourite motor, be it a Triumph TR7 CConvertible, a MGB GT, Alfa Romeo Spider or Morgan 4/4.
Whilst out and about on your travels, stop by one of the many pubs or restaurants on The Suffolk Coast for a delicious meal to complete the day.
Vouchers starts from £100, and experiences are tailored to your requirements.
2. Speed Boat Trip on the Coastal Voyager
If Dad is a thrill-seeker, then a trip on board the Coastal Voyager in Southwold is sure to make his day!
The 'Sea Blast' is a high-speed, 30 minute tour of Solebay, and you can choose to join one of the scheduled trips, or charter the boat and take the whole family along! If Dad would prefer a more genteel experience, then the River Blyth Cruise might be more his thing. Cruise up the Blyth Estuary, looking out for Marsh Harriers, Cormorants and Heron, and enjoy lunch at the Blythburgh White Hart pub.
Prices from £26, lunch not included.
3. Gentleman's Afternoon Tea at The White Lion
For the food lover! Dad will love tucking into Pork Pie, Scotch Egg, Croque Monsieur, Red Wine and Garlic Sausage Roll and Bakewell Tart at the Gentleman's Afternoon Tea at The White Lion Hotel in Aldeburgh.
The masculine afternoon tea includes a pint and costs £17.50
Book a table on 01728 452720.
4. A tour of the Adnams Brewery
Dad can learn how beer is made with a tour of the famous Adnams Brewery and Distillery in Southwold. Learn about the ingredients used and how Adnams makes their beer using self-cleaning brew steam and enjoy sampling the final product!
If he prefers a glass of gin, then a tour of the Copper House Distillery will be right up his street! Discover how Adnams create their range of award-winning spirits from the start of the process in our super-efficient brewery through to distilling and, of course, sampling the finished product.
Both tours take approximately 1 hour and are followed by a tutored tasting, which takes around 30 minutes. The tours cost £12 per person.
5. Canoe, Kayak or Paddleboard along the Alde Estuary
Choose from a canoe, sit-on-top Kayak or stand-up paddleboard and meander along the river along the Alde Estuary taking in the stunning surroundings between Snape and Aldeburgh with Iken Canoe.
Nature loving Dads can explore creeks and flood waters and get up close to seals basking on the mud banks as well as observing a multitude of different wading birds.
Hire is from 1 hour for a stand-up paddle board and 2-4 hours for a 3 man canoe, 2 man kayak or 1 man kayak, so the whole family can go along!
