One of Suffolk's most popular Days Out is Jimmys Farm
near Ipswich. Families can learn about farming, food and nature whilst having a ton of fun!
There is a brilliant adventure playground, two crazy areas, one for the toddlers and another for those who are a bit more grown up. Climb like monkeys, slalom like snakes and go crazy on the zip wire! Don't miss the Hobbit House, animal petting and den building. And there is of course a fantastic restaurant serving excellent dishes from the best regional ingredients (many from the farm itself), and a farm shop and butchery so you can take some goodies home with you.
