FRAMLINGHAM, ten miles north of Woodbridge, boasts a magnificent Castle (daily: April–Oct 10am–6pm; Nov–March 10am–4pm; £3.70; EH), whose severe, turreted walls date from the twelfth century.
The original seat of the Dukes of Norfolk, the fortress is little more than a shell inside, but the curtain-wall, with its thirteen towers, has survived almost intact, a splendid example of medieval military architecture topped by ornamental Tudor chimney stacks.
Footpaths crisscross the earthen banks encircling the castle and from the internal wall walkways, there are sweeping views across town to the imposing red-brick mass of Framlingham College, but nothing remains of the Great Hall where Mary Tudor was proclaimed Queen of England in 1553.
