If you’re thinking about having a UK staycation this year to save some money and see more of the UK then look no further.

Award-winning British movie location expert, Tom Howard, teamed up with hotel chain Premier Inn to create a list of hidden treaures.

Lavenham found itself sixth on the list of 10.

Tom Howard, who worked on The Night Manager show, said:

“Lavenham is a jewel of a medieval village located in the heart of Suffolk and is the perfect location for a long weekend, offering a wide selection of places to eat, drink and explore.”

On the list was Tilbury Fort in Tilbury, Leighton House in Kensington, and Aysgarth Falls in Yorkshire.
