If the weathers nice sunday and monday ....is the beach nice ..what does anybody recommend to do + best local restaurants for dinner ..thank you
Visiting eastern Suffolk next summer on what is mainly a churchcrawling holiday (I know the west). I have found (but not booked) a cottage in Laxfield. It is just off but near the B117, which runs right through the village. Does anyone know Laxfield and/or the B117 well enough to venture an opinion of the wisdom of this idea? I've stayed in a village with a busy road through it, and it was a very unpleasant experience, but it was an A road. There are other options, but this seems like the most "strategic" base for my purposes. (I had settled on Fressingfield, but the cottage was just yanked off the market). Many thanks for any first-hand knowledge. --Spencer
Does anyone remember the name of a famous Pizzeria that was located in 'The Walk' in Ipswich around 1979? Entrance was either via 'The Walk' or from the Buttermarket, I think, but I'm not sure as it was so long ago. The various pizzas on the menu were all named after roman emperors and they were fantastic. It has changed ownership many times since that time sadly, but it was a terrific restaurant.
Next month I'll be taking a short break to Suffolk and it will be the final county in England for me and then I can say I have been to every one.
I don't really know how I've managed to avoid Suffolk in all my years of travelling but there you are. I'm sure Suffolk is a wonderful county as I'm soon to discover.
So what would you recommend I see?
From my base in Stowmarket I will visit Bury St Edmunds, Southwold and the village of Eye as they all look interesting places but are there any hidden gems I should know about?
I wanted to ask what's the best way to get to Ipswich from London?
Train? or Bus?
how long will the trip take? which is cheaper?
thank you in advance.

Hi Always-Helpful VT Forum,
I have two days left in Suffolk, based in Lavenham, before moving on to Norfolk (yes, it's the E.A. grand tour for a New Yorker). Tomorrow (Sat.) promises to be rainy. I'm saving a 'Constable country drive' for Sunday, which looks like the better day (weather). CRISIS: What to do with the rainy day? I imagined I would visit both Bury (so close) and Saffron Walden (in Essex, but not too far away). Now it seems like either/or. Any advice about the better rainy-day-choice?
MANY thanks in advance.

My fiancé and I are planning to get married in St Edmunds church in Southwold in August 2008. We are now looking for a venue for the reception after the ceremony. As I would like to have a very traditional English wedding, we are looking for something pub-like (as opposed to a big banquet hall ... and the Swan is unfortunately out of our budget range).
Does someone know a pub (or traditional restaurant) that has a function room or that can be rented out for a private function? It should be in the center as we are hoping to get around without using cars. There will be about 70 guests in our wedding.
Thank you very much for your help.
Can you please out me in touch with who i need to contact in order to find details of a relation who we believe was the organist at the cathedral back some50+ years ago. His name was Thomas Barry , we here in Australia are tying to trace members of our family.
Any help greatly appreciated.
I am going to a concert there in June. I am looking for a good place to stay that is nearby. I am also trying to find a good bus system.
Any information is appreciated.

I have 2 sons aged 12 and 8. They hate coming out with me at the best of times, and tomorrow I am having my haircut in Ipswich. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might leave them while I have my hair restyled. Something that isn't going to cost me too much and might keep them occupied for about 2 hours would be really great.
Can anyone tell me how to get to Ipswich waterfront from the train station?
I understand the train station is outside the city. Are there buses or taxis available? I had ordered a map at Amazon, but they weren't able to get it in time. The people at the Ipswich Tourist Information don't reply to any e-mails.
Thank you in advance.
my son has an interview tomorrow in Martlesham Heath, does anyone know how easy is it to get to from Ipswich train station ? approxamate cost of a taxi would be welcome, also info on bus services OR any good ideas for me on what to do in Ipswich for 5 hours while he`s being interviewed would be welcome, just in case I have to drive him there as this problem only relates to TOMORROW 7th APRIL, any answers after today will be unnecessary thank you Berni
I would like to visit Wisset, in Suffolk, England, where my family originated. However, I can't seem to find it. Was Wisset a town and does it still exist? I would appreciate any help! Thanks!
