This little gem is on our doorstep. Lidgate Farm, just outside of Isleham, offers ‘pick your own’ wonderfully fresh strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants and redcurrants during the summer. Pay for what you pick.

Sutton Picnic in the Park

A guided summer walk is a great way to see the sights. Starting at Oliver Cromwell’s House, you’ll have the choice of a captivating riverside or city tour provided by an experienced guide.

Towards the end of the summer, there’s Picnic in the Park in Sutton with live music, fireworks display and lots to entertain the family.

Or how about seeing some big-name pop acts at the legendary Newmarket Nights at Newmarket Racecourses? Live after the racing during the summer, you can enjoy unique evenings of concerts in this incredible and beautiful setting.
