About

 

Darsham Country Centre is an exciting and interesting venue that was the old Darsham Railway Station and Stationmaster’s house. It is available for hire by voluntary groups, charities and statutory organisations. Some private and family hire is also often available – please enquire. It’s close to the Suffolk coast and Darsham station is on the working railway line from Ipswich to Lowestoft and now has trains each way every hour through the day. There are good connections from London Liverpool Street – change at Ipswich.


There is also a regular bus service that goes to places like Southwold and Aldeburgh or a dial-up bus which goes to Minsmere bird reserve and the coast at Walberswick. Any group – young or old, on holiday or at work – will find it an ideal place to enjoy.
