Suffolk
The East Suffolk Line, the railway linking Ipswich and Lowestoft, traverses some of the most delightful of Suffolk's unspoilt countryside. The entire line was proposed for closure in the 1960s but the present route was saved following a local campaign. Visitors can enjoy the passing scenery in a relaxed way without using a car.

The stations along the line provide convenient starting and finishing points from which walkers can explore the surrounding countryside, from a short stroll to over ten miles of remote fields and woods. For the more ambitious walker eleven of the walks can be joined up to make a long distance trail of over 70 miles. The paths, bridleways and tracks included in the recommended routes were selected to provide reasonable directness, variety of landscape, local interest and to allow walkers to enjoy a largely traffic-free environment. Even the outskirts of Ipswich and the approaches to Lowestoft can be traversed by pleasant ways through parks, undeveloped green spaces and small roads. Some of the routes explore Suffolk rivers - the Alde, Deben and Fynn.

On Mondays to Saturdays most trains on the East Suffolk line operate to and from London Liverpool Street. A reduced service operates on Sundays.
