Bungay, a lovely town on the Suffolk/Norfolk border in the Waveney Valley
For those looking to take a holiday in the Waveney Valley - that is, the area running along the
Norfolk and Suffolk border, on the east coast - you may well want to spend a few hours in the small town of Bungay. Located
on the north Suffolk border, Bungay is 12 miles from the glorious east coast.
This pretty town is a great place to wander around, with several small independent shops for you to discover. There are also
brightly painted traditional houses lighting up the town.

Bungay is surrounded by the Suffolk countryside, which means the town makes the perfect starting and finishing point for
some rural walks (have a look at some of the walks around Bungay
The chances are you'll need some refreshments and sustenance after all that time on your feet; I'd highly recommend the
"Earsham Street Cafe
" as a place to call in! The photo below shows their "shared platter" - surely large enough to keep
you going until tea time.

As well as the shops, eateries and walks, Bungay has an indoor swimming pool, complete with a water slide. Whether you're after a swim, or you
have children in tow - it's well worth heading to Bungay Swimming Pool
