Just outside Woodbridge is Bentwaters – a disused American Air Base housing a Cold War Mueseum, or why not visit Bawdsey Radar Station just across the river – famous for the birth of ‘radar’. Felixstowe Landguard Fort was built by Henry VIII, and is definitely worth a visit.

It is situated in Christchurch Park, a lovely place to feed the ducks, and for the children to have a run around.
