Suffolk can claim to be one of the most unspoilt counties in Britain, one of the few that does not contain a city. It is mostly agricultural, and low lying. In the south is the Stour Valley, also known as 'Constable country' because of its associations with the artist. This is rightly a popular destination for visitors, with the impressive old village of Dedham at its centre.
Two famous bird reserves, Minsmere and Walberswick, are on the Suffolk coastline near the interesting seaside town of Southwold.
