Ickworth House: Ickworth House is a country house outside Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England. It is a neoclassical structure topped by a giant rotunda in a park laid out by Capability Brown. It is in the care of the National Trust, and, as part of the Ickworth House, Park & Garden property, is open to the public. There are also other National Trust properties in the Area.

Kentwell Hall: Kentwell Hall is a moated picturesque Tudor mansion with outbuildings, and a rare breeds farm and gardens. Most of the current building facade dates from the mid 16th century, but the origins of Kentwell are much earlier, with references in the Domesday Book of 1086.

Cambridge: Cambridge is a wonderful fusion of the everyday and the extraordinary, a living city that has shaped history, that today reflects the best of historic and contemporary life and is continuing to make its mark on the future.

Newmarket: Newmarket is the historic Home of Horseracing and the greatest horseracing centre in the world. It offers a treasure trove of sights and sounds for the racing enthusiast.

Aldeburgh: A charming town on the Suffolk coast which has interesting sites to visit.
