Suffolk is easily accessed by the A12 or the A11/A14. The A12 coastal road is a very nice drive particularly as it goes through Southwold (Adnams country) and follows the line of the coast. Trains from London run regularly and directly into Suffolk . Travelling by train from the North or Midlands will mean a change at Norwich, Cambridge or Peterborough. Suffolk has a good network of public transport throughout the county which means you can leave the car at home and reach most areas by train or bus.
Many associate Suffolk with old thatched properties with rendered walls and yellow or pink colouring to the render. Most of these buildings are timber framed with the render applied on top. In areas such as Bury St Edmunds and Lavenham you can see some of these traditional timber framed buildings and also the distinctive black and white Tudor style properties which were developed by the Victorians. The timber prior to this had been lime washed normally in the same colour of the render. With the Victorian era came more brick buildings with slates on the roofs especially over to the East coast of Suffolk. This style didn't have as much impact on other areas of the county.
