Eye

Eye maybe a small town but it has a big personality and a lot of character. Coming from the Old English word for island and typical for low-lying East Anglia, the first settlement of Eye would have almost certainly been surrounded by water.

The crumbling motte and bailey that sits atop a hill looking down on this charming market town was undoubtedly the centre of Eye of old. Nowadays, a visit to the remains of Eye Castle may be less foreboding then in its prime, but it still delivers not only a slice of historical charm, but also a spectacular panoramic view of the town below and of the surrounding Suffolk countryside.

Close to Eye is the Victorian Thornham Estate, where you can explore the ancient parkland, woodland and spectacular countryside that is woven into over twelve miles of marked footpaths. Dotted throughout the woodland are Thornham’s beautiful giant wood carvings.

In the middle of Eye is the unusual and rather special Italianate town hall, built in the 19th Century it is striking not only for its extraordinary architecture but also for its history, which includes a clock tower that was used to lock away any criminal elements in the town!

For a small town, Eye packs in a lot of historical architectural styles. There are the recently restored almshouses with spectacular neo-Tudor architecture, the timber framed 19th century ‘Red House’, the Grade I listed ‘Guildhall’ and the lovely church of St. Peter and St. Pauls, which dates back to 1470.

Eye is well placed to serve as a gateway to the rest of North Suffolk and South Norfolk, making it an excellent holiday destination; find out for yourself and search for holiday cottages in Eye today.
