Hard to believe this wild and windy spot was once a thriving city to rival the port of London. Erosion and two great storms in the 13th century have left us the remains of the lost city of Dunwich to romance over.
This is a gorgeous piece of public sculpture is a familiar sight to anyone who has visited the rather arty village of Aldeburgh with its various festivals, poetry, music, food and more.
A stroll round Orford, with maybe a little crabbing and certainly a seafood snack, is a lovely way to pass the hours.
And then there’s the utterly magical Shingle Street – an area of golden pebble dunes punctuated by graphic sea cabbages and infused with an ethereal light. PS there’s not a street in sight!
Of course there are plenty of other places to visit nearby but if I had to choose today, I’d be here in Shingle Street.
