Suffolk's largest lake with meadows, woodlands ponds and picnic sites.
Alton Water is a surprisingly diverse destination with small ponds, broad leaf woods, small inlets and bays, marshes, bird hides and a very active sailing centre.
During the year the lake hosts many events from the Great East Swim to the Alton Water 10k race, but remains a wonderful haven for peaceful walks, picnics and bird watching throughout the whole year.
There is an 8 mile (13km) circular path offering many different views of the lake, the surrounding landscape and thw wide variety of wildlife. During the day you will see many ducks, geese and swans. At dusk look out for barn owls, silently flying around the lakes' edge looking for their next meal.
