About the reserve

Framlingham is perfect for a famliy day out sight-seeing   A stroll around the stunningly beautiful Mere, combined with a visit to the bustling market town and medieval castle, makes this a great day out. 

With its surrounding wet meadows and ancient castle backdrop, the Mere at Framlingham is considered by many to be the best view in inland Suffolk. Its wildlife is equally special and the reserve is best known for its sedge beds – a rare habitat in Suffolk – and stream of migrating birds. There is a wonderful show of massed marsh marigolds, delicate ragged-robin and lady’s smock in spring and if water levels aren’t too high, birds like green and common sandpiper and snipe can sometimes be seen.
