This is one of my favourite gardens. The dry garden is a real lesson in how to plant gardens that don't rely on water. Good all year round.

Sightseeing
Do visit the ruins of the Abbey at Bury St Edmunds. I grew up playing on the ruins and its celebrating it's 1000 years in 2020! The knights met here to draw up the Magna Carta so its very special. Do also go into the Cathedral whilst you are nearby. There is a wonderful statue of King Edmund by Elizabeth Frink just outside it.

You could put Lavenham into virtually every category. It's a totally unspoilt medieval town that was the centre of the wool trade. Do visit the Guildhall and Little Hall. It also has some great places to eat. The Great House is one of my favourite places for a special meal.

Newmarket is a wonderful town if your like racing. Horses walk side by side pedestrians with their own network of paths to get them through the town and out onto the gallops. Early in the mornings you will see all the different trainers taking their strings of horses out to exercise. There is the National Stud that is great to look around and do go to the races if you get the chance.
