Hotels in Suffolk are popular with tourists because the area is of outstanding natural beauty. It encompasses one of the most ancient regions of the UK, which is a monastery in Bury St Edmunds. It was founded in 630AD.
Rendelsham Forest is also located in Suffolk. It’s referred to as Britain’s Roswell because it’s the site of one of the most famous UFO events in England. Back in December 1980 there were a series of reported sightings of unexplained lights. It was also alleged that a craft landed in the forest. The Ministry of Defence claimed to not investigate the reports because it didn’t pose a threat to national security. However, evidence indicates that the MoD actually held a substantial file on the subject. When the file was released in 2001 it was revealed that the file, instead of containing details of a massive cover up, just held internal correspondence and responses to enquiries from the public. Surely, Suffolk is the ideal holiday location for all UFO buffs.
