Lake named top free attraction

Have your say

MORE than 200,000 people visited Needham Lake last year, making it the top free attraction in Suffolk, recent research has revealed.

Research by Visit England has named the lake, in Needham Market, as the most popular free attraction in Suffolk and the second most popular in East Anglia – just behind Holkham Hall.

Comments from visitors to Needham Lake noted a number of reasons as to why people enjoy visiting, including the picnic area, the nature reserve, organised childrens’ activities and easy accessibility to the River Gipping footpath and to Needham Market town centre.
