Hotels in Woodbridge
Just a short drive from Suffolk's attractive North Sea coast is Woodbridge, a Saxon settlement near one of the most historically significant pre-Norman sights in England. This is a community that proudly preserves its early-medieval past, and has inherited many remarkable monuments over the centuries.
The town is also home to more than two-dozen listed buildings, and is overlooked by the quaint 10th-century Church of St Mary's.
What to see
One of the most fascinating historic monuments is The Olde Bell & Steelyard, which, with its black-and-white timber frames, is characteristic of many 16th-century buildings, and is adjacent to a former 17th-century steelyard.
Woodbridge is also near the magnificent country mansion of Bawdsey Manor, which was built in the 1890s and is best known for being the location where radar was invented, in 1936. During the Battle of Britain, the RAF pioneered novel radar technology in its campaign against the German Luftwaffe, who outnumbered the British forces by almost three to one at the start of the battle in September 1940.
A milling settlement since the 12th century
See the Grade I-listed Woodbridge Tide Mill, which can still produce wholemeal flour and was restored after the Second World War. In fact, a mill has existed at this site for well over 800 years, although the current building dates back to the late 18th century. Another place worth visiting is Sutton Hoo, which was once an ancient burial ground and now surrounds a splendid Edwardian house.
