Branch diaries: A dream Suffolk day in Woodbridge

Suffolk is a county full of stunning sights, places to eat and activities to keep you busy. We’ve got branches spread all across the county, so who better to take us round Woodbridge for the day then one of our wonderful member assistants at our Woodbridge Branch.

Kick off the morning…

Kara: ‘My day would start with a bike ride, followed by a quick dog walk before it gets too hot. You can’t beat a breakfast at Honey and Harvey!’

Grabbing a bite to eat…

Kara: ‘Lunch would be weather dependant. On a lovely hot day, I would take a drive out to the Ramsholt Arms. Otherwise, I would walk to one of my local pubs. The Cherry Tree has a lovely garden to enjoy lunch in, but the Duke of York means that I don’t have to walk up the hill to get home!’

An afternoon kayak on Suffolk waters…

Kara: ‘We store our Kayaks at the Woodbridge Yacht Club. Depending on tide times, we often spend an afternoon on the water either as a family, or with friends. The club is very friendly, and the Terrace is lovely and peaceful to relax with a book and watch the activity on the water.’

A dinner break in the evening…

Kara: ‘I love a curry! The Royal Bengal in Woodbridge is one of the best. They make recommendations for different dishes and always come up with something delicious.’

A drink to help soak in the sun going down…

Kara:Watching the sun go down anywhere with a large glass of red wine, or maybe watching a movie. The Riverside cinema has some great listings’.

A big thanks to our member assistant Kara for taking us on her perfect Suffolk day around Woodbridge, we hope you took some inspiration and have a thoroughly enjoyable bank holiday. We will be closed on Thursday and Friday but look forward to seeing you back in branches on Monday.
