About this book

This book delves into unsung delights and personal favourites not covered by other guidebooks, from conservation projects to boat trips, wildlife holidays, restaurants using locally sourced ingredients and scenic walks.

'Slow guides take time to point the way.' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall 'This book, as much an armchair read as a practical guide, delves into fact and fiction with humour, affection and gusto' Let's Talk 'The Slow guides are the perfect travel companion - warm, witty and stuffed with insider knowledge. I can't think of a better way to unlock the joys of Britain.' Carl Honore, author of In Praise of Slow 'This book is packed with beautiful pictures and information on Suffolk's history, walks and places to stay as well as all the practical details you need for an easy, relaxing break. The author lets the reader in on all the well-known sights as well as off-the-beaten-track secrets.' Food & Travel magazine
