Suffolk’s smallest town, Clare is a charming historic market center, which lies on the Stour, the border with Essex – at its heart, a classic wool town.

Clare’s country park has the ruins of a Norman castle enclosing a listed railway station, ponds and multiple walks.  There’s an elegant medieval church, an Augustinian priory and numerous timber-framed houses, including the pargetted Ancient House Museum, and the ramparts of an Iron Age settlement.

Attractive shops and eating places, antique outlets, curiosities and unexpected corners within the Upper Stour Valley complete the picture.  Just the place for a wonderful weekend.
