Wrap up warm and try out one of these wonderful walks in Suffolk this winter.

1. The Snape Heath and River Pub Walk

Take this picturesque circular route at sunrise or sundown for beautiful pastel skies over the River Alde. There are also two popular pubs (The Golden Key and The Crown Inn) at the start/finish, so you're spoilt for choice for an after walk meal. For full details of the walk, click here: www.alltrails.com/suffolk/the-snape-heath-and-river-pub-walk.

2. Thornham Walks

Take a wander around the family-friendly Thornham Walks with its miles of footpaths, imaginative sculptures, historic hall and ancient oaks. Find out more about the magic of Thornham Walks here: www.greatbritishlife.co.uk/explore-thornham-walks-in-eye-suffolk

3. Lavenham and Brent Eleigh Circular

Lavenham is a famously beautiful village thanks to its gorgeous historic buildings and because it has appeared in several films such as Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon and the Harry Potter franchise. However, the nearby Brent Eligh is equally pretty; take the walk and decide for yourself. For full details of the walk, click here: www.alltrails.com/suffolk/lavenham-and-brent-eleigh

4. Dunwich Heath

Traverse the always pretty landscape of Dunwich Heath this winter to witness the beauty of frost tipped heather and gorse and breathe in the fresh sea air as you look out over the Dunchwich Heath Cliff. The heath is open from dawn till dusk during the winter months, but the car park itself is only open from 9 am to 4 pm, so beyond those hours, Dunwich Heath can only be accessed by foot. 

5. Melton to Woodbridge Riverside Walk

Stroll down the pretty riverside path alongside the River Deben from Melton to Woodbridge and perhaps make a whole day of it by taking a walk around the famous archaeological burial site Sutton Hoo too.
