SUFFOLK TOURIST GUIDE

Great Value Days Out in Suffolk

Getting to Suffolk has never been easier - or cheaper - and there are a great many budget things to do when you arrive!

Coach travel is a great option for journeying on a budget. National Express coaches stop at many places across the county, such as Ipswich, Felixstowe, Sudbury and Newmarket, to name just a few. They also run a ‘Funfares’ promotion on which you can travel for just £1, and Cambridge is one of the destinations included. If you travel frequently it is also worth checking out their coach card schemes.

There are options for travel on one day, three consecutive days and seven consecutive days.
