There's plenty to do to keep the whole family entertained on The Suffolk Coast this half term...
Our guide has all you need to know to plan your holiday this May!
Where to Stay
There's plenty of places on The Suffolk Coast that can accommodate the whole family. If you fancy somewhere you can call your own for the week, choose from one of the many self-catering cottages, barns, houses and apartments that are on offer.
If you would prefer to put your feet up, then book a stay in a hotel or bed and breakfast; whether you want to be a stone's throw from the sea, in the centre of a pretty market town, or nestled in the Suffolk countryside, you're sure to find the ideal place to rest your head after a packed day of family fun.
And of course the family dog is welcome too as many of The Suffolk Coast's places to stay will accommodate your 4-legged friend.
What to Do
Children will love the golden sands of Lowestoft beach. After a walk along the prom, stop by the Claremont Pier to play on the amusements and warm up with a hot chocolate. Just a mile away you will find Oulton Broad; take a stroll through the Edwardian Nicholas Everitt Park where children will enjoy playing in the play area whilst you watch the boats bob on the river.
Meet the animals of the African savannah at Africa Alive! in Kessingland, before heading to Southwold for a walk along the Pier, stopping by the Under the Pier show; a collection of hand-built, wacky machines that kids and adults will love!
The whole family will be entertained with a trip to Landguard Fort in Felixstowe, join one of the guided tours and afterwards stop by Cafe Bencotto for a delicious meal to finish the day.
Spend the morning feeding the lambs, pigs and chickens at Easton Farm Park and the afternoon walking the castle walls at the historic Framlingham Castle, where Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen of England.
