Family Fun on the Suffolk Coast

We are a family friendly hotel and look forward to welcoming you and your children for an enjoyable break, on the stunning Suffolk heritage coast, this February half-term.

There are plenty activities for your children to enjoy in the area to keep them entertained while you relax and take in the beautiful surroundings our great county has to offer. Here are a few suggestions…


Sutton Hoo

This world famous Anglo-Saxon burial site is a must-do when visiting Suffolk. Located in Woodbridge, a short distance from the coast and around 14 miles from Aldeburgh, the popular visitor centre welcomes families year round with exhibitions showcasing priceless treasures and artefacts.

Framlingham Castle
This magnificent 12th century fortress has a long and exciting history which makes for a captivating day out in Suffolk. Children can enjoy a host of interactive features and games, which bring the great history of the castle to life. Audio tours are also available and be sure to take advantage of the fantastic views when on the famous Wall Walk.

Africa Alive
Based in Kessingland, Africa Alive is one of the UK’s largest wildlife attractions where visitors can get up close to rhinos, cheetahs, giraffes, lions and hundreds of other African animals and birds. A fantastic day out for the whole family who can enjoy a safari experience with guided tours and a fun-packed Discovery Centre.

Boating at Thorpeness Meare

The picturesque Meare at Thorpeness is a fun and safe activity for families with waters never over three feet deep. Enjoy a multitude of boats from canoes and kayaks to rowing boats and punts, and set on a little adventure around the surrounding islands spread across forty acres of water.

Minsmere Nature Reserve
Enjoy guided wildlife walks and tours through the stunning countryside at RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve. Family activities are available throughout the year along with hot and cold meals at the visitor centre and cafe. Children will especially enjoy the Wild Zone and Wild Wood Adventure!

Rendlesham Forest
The main recreational area for the Sandling Forests, Rendlesham offers a fun and exciting experience in the woods. With three circular walks, a special UFO trail and various cycle routes, you certainly won’t be short of ideas. Keep an eye out for the giant sculptures!

And don't forget that kids stay free B&B at the Brudenell when sharing a family room with two full paying adults.
