It might be that you’re a hardy individual, and you don’t see winter as a sign to retreat indoors like the rest of us. In that case, why not get out on the Suffolk waters and enjoy a relaxing boat ride? It’s great for clearing the head, especially in November and December. There are actually five estuaries in Suffolk – the Stour, the Orwell, the Deben, the Alde and the Blythe. Together, they create a rather magnificent watery haven for birds, fish and other wildlife, says the BBC.
For something more festive and a lot warmer, get yourself down to St Peter’s By The Waterfront, say the experts at IpswichLife.com.
