About the neighbourhood
If you want to explore further afield The Anglo Saxon Centre and Country Park is just opposite and Lackford Lakes and Suffolk Wildlife Trust Centre is just a short drive away. The medieval town of Bury St Edmunds has a museum and new Arc Shopping Centre, Abbey Gardens and the Cathedral, something there for everyone, and there is plenty of places to eat or just watch the world go by while you sit back! The racing town of Newmarket is just 12 miles away, get up early and watch the strings of racehorses go out for their morning exercise, a sight to behold. If you are National Trust enthusiast, Ickworth House and Wimpole Hall are a small journey away.
How to get there
Off A1101 Barton Mills/Bury St Edmunds road or off A134 Bury St Edmunds/Thetford road, follow brown signs for Anglo Saxon Centre, West Stow. Wideham Farm, and Kings Forest Caravan Park is located directly opposite the Anglo Saxon Centre in West Stow.
