Suffolk

Click the map for tourism ideas Suffolk is a county with generally flat, low-lying terrain where agriculture is the primary economic activity. During the Middle Ages, Suffolk was a prosperous wool-manufacturing centre whose wealth generated grand medieval churches. The beauty of the countryside inspired John Constable, the great landscape artist who was born here, and many local scenes are still recognisable as the settings for some of his best-known works.
