50 Things to do in Suffolk

It is now 2019 but it's still valid today, BBC Radio Suffolk and the East Anglian Daily Times in 2014 asked the public for their thoughts on what they love to do in our diverse county of Suffolk.

BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Mark Murphy said:

"The amazing response shows the deep love and affection people have for Suffolk. We could easily have had a top 100. What was lovely was so many Suffolk ex-pats got in touch to share their suggestions with us, as well as locals"
