Although you can get our delicious Munchy Seeds all over the country, Munchy HQ is located in Leiston, Suffolk, in East Anglia.
Whilst we may be biased, we think it’s a beautiful place to live with lots to see and do!
To celebrate one of the most exciting events on our calendar, the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival, we thought we’d take you on a whistle-stop tour of 6 of our favourite things to do in Suffolk (although there are lots more!)
- Aldeburgh: A picture-perfect seaside town famous for its pebble beach, quirky shops and the best fish and chips in the county. Take a walk along the seafront and discover artist Maggi Hambling’s striking scallop shell sculpture – it’s a tribute to the composer Benjamin Britten, who spent much of his life in Aldeburgh.
2. Southwold: Another of Suffolk’s beautiful beaches, visit Southwold for its old-fashioned pier complete with amusements, arcade games and a great place to stop for a cup of tea with a view. Southwold has a huge expanse of sandy beaches fringed by rows of quintessentially English coloured beach huts.
3. Framlingham Castle: Most recently, this castle was made famous in Ed Sheeran’s song, “Castle on the Hill” (yes, really!) but long before that, it was an imposing fortress where Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen of England in 1553. Visit to get a sense of the hundreds of years of history that took place there – and, if it’s sunny, to have a picnic in the grounds.
4. Orford: For expansive views and foodie delights, visit the fishing village of Orford on the banks of the River Ore. Whether you want to walk, cycle, or just cosy up in one of Orford’s many cafés or country pubs, there’s something for everyone. Top tip: the coffee and cake at Pump St Bakery are not to be missed.
5. Kentwell Hall: One for all the family, Kentwell Hall is a striking Tudor stately home near Long Melford that offers a year-round calendar of events, live reenactments and interactive fun and games that go down a treat with kids.
6. Woodbridge: One for shopping, wandering and eating out – Woodbridge is a historic town on the River Deben that is home to an eclectic range of pubs, foodie favourite restaurants, cafés and independent shops. It’s also home to one of the only working tide mills in the country – go for a walk along the river and check out the beloved white tide mill at work on the banks of the Deben.
