Small, but perfectly formed. Head to historic Clare in south Suffolk for excellent transport links and the chance to live in a character house surrounded by independent shops and places to eat.

East Bergholt

Grab your paint brushes (when you're not commuting into the capital), because this stunning bucolic corner of Suffolk might just inspire your creative side à la famous former resident John Constable.

Lavenham

Step back in time in this pretty as a picture medieval wool town with gourmet restaurants and touristy boutiques hidden within the beautiful beamed buildings.

Bungay

Want to escape the hoards heading out of London to the countryside? This hidden gem market town on the Norfolk/ Suffolk border is amazing value for money and is right on the edge of the beautiful Broads.

Framlingham

This genteel central Suffolk town has sublime castle views, is surrounded by some of the county's best countryside and even inspired a famous musician to write a "love song to Suffolk". Part of our Top 200 Places to Live series.

Bury St Edmunds

"The jewel in the crown of Suffolk". The streets here are lined with pastel-hued town houses, independent shops and a lively food and arts scene, meaning this market town certainly lives up to its name.

Woodbridge

Life on the estuary is not to be sniffed at. You can enjoy all the best bits of the gentrified Suffolk coast without the price tag in this charming market town.
