Woodbridge has made the cut in the sixth edition of The Sunday Times Best Places to Live.
Our beautiful, bustling, vivid and vibrant town was earmarked as a “proper year-round place, set on the River Deben at the fringes of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and eight miles from the coast.”
Highlights picked out included riverside paths, the Ferry Quay Café, the artisan coffee at Honey and Harvey, the Tide Mill, primary schools Kyson and Woodbridge and high school Farlingaye. The “special community spirit” was also praised.
It added: “Architecturally, there’s the usual Suffolk combo of wonky beams and wild colour.”
Britain is scattered with so many cool cities, thriving market towns and villages, as well as charming suburbs, and narrowing it down to a shortlist is a tricky business.
The Sunday Times takes into account jobs, life expectancy, schools, broadband speed, culture, community, shops and more.
Helen Davies, The Sunday Times Home editor, said: “Choosing the right location to put down roots is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make.
“Which is why we’re here to help – and what Best Places to Live in Britain is all about.”
