Orford is, perhaps, the most interesting of Suffolk coastal towns. Like many Suffolk coastal towns, it operated as a port and was a fishing village in the Middle Ages. It still has its castle, a beautiful 12th century military stronghold that would play a key defence role during the Second World War where it was home to coastal defences and operated as a radar station.
Orford even has its own nature reserve, the Orford Ness. This is a long, wide shingle split that has been used as an airstrip in the past. This is where Orford Castle resides. Because of its historic importance and its natural beauty, Orford Ness is run by the National Trust as a nature reserve and it attracts tourists during the summer months.
It isn’t just Orford’s beauty that attracts tourists, though. Orford also attracts tourists during the summer months because of its sailing clubs. The town has taken full advantage of its location and offers a number of attractions such as cruises, water sports and sightseeing.
Overall, Orford is a town you should definitely visit in your lifetime.
