Dunwich Heath

Dunwich Heath is one of the most dramatic settings in all of Suffolk, where heathland reaches the coast with stunning views towards historic Southwold to the north and famous RSPB Minsmere to the south.

This is a wonderful place to visit any time of year, but really comes into its own in late August when the heather blooms and the landscape is a sea of purple. If you can catch this scene in the early morning light or late setting sun then you will be in for a treat.

The heath is crossed by many paths with a number of benches to take in the view. There is also an accessible sea watching centre equipped with telescopes.

The National Trust has an excellent cafe and very helpful information hut with a fun children's play area by the picnic tables.
