Retire to Suffolk

Retire to Bury St Edmunds Suffolk


With ancient forts, curious museums and country manors, there's plenty of intriguing history to explore around Suffolk. You can see the 12th century keep of Orford Castle, which was used as a radar emplacement during the Second World War, marvel at the 1,000-year-old St Edmundsbury Cathedral, visit a reconstructed Anglo-Saxon village and watch living history re-enactments at West Stow, or even see the armour and weapons discovered in the ancient burial site of an Anglo-Saxon king at Sutton Hoo.

You'll also find more than 60 aircraft on display at the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum, exhibits on culture, history and national heritage at the Ipswich Museum, and the fortification where English forces repelled a 17th century Dutch invasion at Landguard Fort.
