Things to do in Blythburgh, Suffolk

Holy Trinity Church © Peggy Cannell

The historical village of Blythburgh has been bisected by the busy A12 road which carries a short bridge over the River Blyth from where a panoramic view can be seen towards Southwold and Walberswick.

This view can also be enjoyed by relaxing in the garden of the White Hart Public House.

Close to the Inn the road forks to a peaceful country road leading to various little villages, each with their own distinctive appeal.

The Heath

The extensive Heath is now either side of the A12 road where on one side it is very popular for picnics, while the opposite side is enjoyed on Sundays for the sport of motor cross.

Chocolate Box Cottages and Picturesque Walks

A stroll along the lanes shows diverse, real English Cottages some are thatched and known as 'chocolate-box' pictures. For the energetic there are picturesque walks to the pretty village of Walberswick, or to the village of Wenhaston and further along to the town of Halesworth.

Medieval Church of The Holy Trinity

The beautiful large Medieval Church of The Holy Trinity dominates the area, at night when it is illuminated it can be seen for miles around. It is a 'must' for artists and photographers.

Orchestral Concerts

The interior is sparse in comparison with the large neighbouring Church at Southwold, but The Holy Trinity serves a dual purpose by holding orchestral concerts, plus it has so much of historical interest and of course its legends, that the two should not be compared.

A visit to Blythburgh and its Church should not be missed.
