The town of Lavenham is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Suffolk and should be on every holidaymaker's list whenin Suffolk.

Another place to visit on the Constable trail is Flatford Mill, another location painted by Constable. Cycle or walk along the canal and admire the original mill and scenery.
