My favourite day trips from Suffolk


Railway tracks in the countryside

Suffolk is really well placed for day trips to the well known areas of England (and some lesser known areas). If you’re already at uni in Suffolk, thinking of coming, or starting in September, here’s some day trips you should definitely take during your time here.


I’ve visited Cambridge twice during my time at Suffolk, and I would 100% recommend going to anyone. You can visit the colleges of Cambridge University, go punting on the River Cam or walk around the town. Spring is a wonderful time to go when everything is starting to bloom around the river.


You’ve most likely done the typical tourist areas of London plenty of times (if you haven’t, you should really do it!). It’s just over an hour’s train ride to London from Ipswich, and you can try all the hidden (or not so hidden) gems of London.

Take some time to go around the museums of London. I recently went to the Tate Modern, and it was really interesting. Camden Market and Borough Market are great areas to visit, and so are the beautiful parks around London. Regents Park is by far the best I’ve visited.


Even if you’ve only got an afternoon to spare, Norwich is a really great place to visit. Despite the rivalry between the two football teams, it’s got some really nice areas around it to visit. The cathedral is one, as well as all the shops around the town. If you’re a fan of beer, try the Belgium Monk for some new tastes.

Villages around Suffolk

Suffolk is surrounded by typically quaint villages which are perfect for if you want a bit of time away from the bustle of town life. Stowmarket, Debenham, Pin Mill and many more are perfect for a walk, a drink in the pub, or a cuppa in the local café.
