Suffolk landmark Framlingham Castle will be playing host to a family-friendly Christmas adventure trail from Boxing Day.

English Heritage, which manages the castle, will be hosting its Christmas Adventure Quest event up to January 3, running every day between 10am and 4pm.

Families will be encouraged to explore the castle's grounds and uncover its deep history, making use of clues and QR codes that tell the landmark's tales.

English Heritage has described the event as "a great way for the whole family to get out and about in Christmas week".

Last year, Framlingham Castle opened for free for residents with an IP13 postcode as part of a campaign to encourage people to shop in the town ahead of Christmas.
