Discover Suffolk - Walks, Cycle Routes and Countryside Places to Visit in Suffolk

Barningham and Market Weston Parish Councils and the team at Discover Suffolk have been beavering away, creating a beautiful new circular walk leaflet.   Combine it with the Hopton cum Knettishall walks, and The Stanton Rides, and you'll pretty much have the whole area covered - and probably plenty of blisters too! 

Welcome to Discover Suffolk, Suffolk County Council's official countryside website for walks and cycle routes in Suffolk.

From the Brecks to the Sandlings and from the Broads to the estuaries, Suffolk is a county best explored on foot, from a bicycle or on the back of a horse. With over 5,000km of waymarked paths, two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, long distance footpaths and national cycle routes, Suffolk offers a wealth of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.

Within this website you will find inspiration on everything from a riverside stroll for all the family to a day long hike along secluded valleys.
