Other tourist draws include the excellent Museum of East Anglian Life, in the centre of Stowmarket, where you can explore the rural buildings and take a stroll through the grounds. And, if you like to spot wildlife in their natural habitat, the RSPB Centre at Minsmere hosts year round outdoor activities.
