What its like to live in Woodbridge?
Woodbridge is a quaint town within Suffolk in the East of England that sits on the River Deben. With a recorded history going back to 600AD, the town has retained an interesting variety of historical architecture, making it an appealing town just to walk around. This includes probably the most important Anglo-Saxon site in the United Kingdom - Sutton Hoo. If you would prefer to have a gentle walk outside of the town then the River Deben is the ideal place to take in the scenery or jump onto a riverboat. The town was voted by Country Living in 2010 as one of the only six "Foodie" towns in the UK.
Things to do
Woodbridge Antiques Centre displays the wares of over thirty dealers, specialising in small items. Here you will find a wide range of antiquities from glass, silver and fine jewellery to pocket watches, porcelain and militia.
Orford Ness National Nature Reserve is the biggest natural shingle spit in Europe and was used between 1913 and 1983 as a top secret military site.
Sutton Hoo is one of Britain's most important archaeological sites as it contains the burial chamber and funeral ship of the early Anglo-Saxon warrior king, Raedwald.
There is a very good bus service that runs to, from and through Woodbridge serving many of the surrounding towns and villages. The main bus stop in the town is from The Turban Shopping centre.
Woodbridge is also very fortunate to have a train station in the middle of the town that is linked with the main national railway and forms part of the direct link between Ipswich and Lowestoft. There is also a direct train to London's Liverpool Street.
