During 2014, BBC Radio Suffolk and the East Anglian Daily Times asked the public for their thoughts on what they love to do in this diverse county of ours.

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"
