The idyllic snow dusted landscapes and cosy chocolate box houses that adorn greetings cards in the festive season have an uncanny ability to conjure Christmas cheer and a warm nostalgia. But as any Suffolk local will know, we don’t have to look far in our beautiful county to discover scenes that give that warm Christmassy glow for real. Here are 19 pictures of festive days out in Suffolk and glorious winter walks to inspire intrepid Suffolk explorers.

1. If its windswept beauty and a bracing winter walk you’re after, the Suffolk coast is a good place to start

 

2. From the time worn pier at Lowestoft…

 

3. … and the candy stripe beach huts at Southwold

 

4. … to this surreal scallop at Aldeburgh.

 

5. Gentle strollers and keen dog walkers alike will enjoy the sublime beauty of the sea and sand – including this guy...

 

6. The sunset over the River Deben might leave you speechless

 

7. …so might this one.

 

8. This crazy beautiful sunset could be straight out of a Constable painting

 

9. … because he was a Suffolk boy too.

 

10. It’s not just natural beauty Suffolk has to offer though, there are awe-inspiring churches

19. But just in case all these things didn’t tempt you to get out and about this season, perhaps this super-duper Christmas tree in Ipswich will.
