A Few Places to Visit in Suffolk

Our visit to Suffolk was initially for work (see the portrait shoot we did with Margaret Howell for T Magazine here) but instead of driving the 4 hours there for just the one day we decided to take it slow and extend our trip to explore a little.

In Thorpeness we stared in awe at the creative approach to residential architecture and the boldness in their decoration and likewise in Aldeburgh although the character their shone through in the collective use of pastel paints.

We took a walk along boardwalks that were hidden in reedbeds at Walberswick and found a tapestry of textures in the marshes.
