The town of Clare


The smallest town in Suffolk is also one of its prettiest.

Clare is one of the famous Wool Towns, and is full of pastel coloured thatched cottages and timbered Tudor houses. In fact it has an amazing 135 listed buildings, including the magnificent St Peter and St Paul’s church, and the appropriately named Ancient House. There is even the ruins of Clare Castle which dates back to the time of the Norman Conquests. These stand in Clare Country Park, 32 acres of historic buildings, woodland walks, play areas and water features.
