The Suffolk Coast DMO is working with Visit Britain, Visit England and Visit East of England sharing information about places that you can visit in the vast unexplored areas of Norfolk and Suffolk.

The concept of the “unexplored” theme evolved from recent visitors opting for a UK based “staycation”. There were high number of visitors commenting on our Facebook page expressing surprise and delight about finding the beauty of the Suffolk Coast, this clearly showed the secret retreats were being enjoyed and shared. 

Finding a similar response to areas nearby; Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Stowmarket and Newmarket we recognised that our beautiful county can compete with the very best for a staycation and a short break.
