Suffolk has a wealth of places to soak up nature to improve your mental health, forest bathe or just enjoy being outside. Check out my favourite nature spots, routes and places below:
An ancient woodland alongside fen meadow full of wildlife.
Walk among the ruins of a church, soak up the golden sands and let the kids clamber over sculpture like trees coming out of the sand.

Walk along the shingle beach, through heather moorland and native woodland as you listen and watch for wildlife.
Walk among reedbeds, lowland wet grassland, shingle vegetation and lowland heath.
