Dunwich Heath

Dunwich Heath

Dunwich Heath offers a real sense of peace, tranquility and being at one with nature!

Tucked away on the Suffolk Coast between Walberswick and Westleton, Dunwich Heath, part of the National Trust organisation, is a rare habitat for precious wildlife and home to species such as the nightjar, woodlark, ant-lion, Adder and Dartford warbler.

From July to September, the Heath is alive with colour; a patchwork of pink and purple heather and coconut-scented yellow gorse is an unmissable experience.

Fantastic walks and stunning scenery - make sure you put this on your list of things to do whilst in Suffolk!

There are often special events and guided walks put on by the centre so keep an eye on the website.

Enjoy a walk with the warden and discover the special heathland wildlife. Perhaps try some bird watching on the coast? Look out for some precious amber on the neighbouring beach. And don't forget, you are but a few metres away from the Lost City of Dunwich!

They regularly put on nature trails for children, tracker pack activities, and beach scavenger hunts.
