This popular market town on the River Fromus lies at the centre of Suffolk's Heritage Coastal region, so it's an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Saxmundham has been well served by rail since 1859, with agricultural produce from nearby villages keeping the station busy through its early life. After a few local line cuts, today only the line from Lowestoft to Ipswich and London survives, although a branch line is still used for goods traffic to the nearby Sizewell Power Station. Saxmundham station is less than a minute's walk from the high street, which boasts many independent shops, restaurants and pubs, plus an outdoor market every Wednesday. Bird watchers should head to the Minsmere reserve, which is the RSPB's main visitor centre. The local villages of Leiston and Thorpeness are also worth a visit with the Leiston Abbey, Thorpeness Meare and Thorpeness Windmill offering fantastic days out. All are easily reached on local buses.
