Eye

Eye is a pleasant Mid-Suffolk market town known for its guildhall, church, hilltop ruins and selection of listed buildings.

The hilltop ruins that remain today are those of a 16th century windmill built on the site of the original castle ruins. From atop the ruins you can get a 360-degree view of the town including the guildhall and church.

The guildhall is privately owned but can be seen from the outside when visiting the beautiful 14th century church of St Peter and St Paul.

The church of St Peter and St Paul features many period features and is a popular tourist attraction for those visiting Suffolk.

Eye has plenty of amenities including a supermarket, shops, delicatessen, cake shop, fish and chips, library, police station and hospital.

There is a circular walk around castle hill that takes in the local buildings, church and guildhall, local shops and parking.

Due to its mid-Suffolk location, Eye is a popular stop on-route to more well trodden tourist destinations. There is plenty of free parking and many an hour can be spent recharging your batteries by taking in the local architecture, sampling the homemade food from the local delicatessen or taking in the views from the castle ruins overlooking the town.
