Many people took advantage of the Easter bank holiday sunshine on Saturday, heading for the bustling seaside at Southwold.
Families and pets basked in the spring sunshine and there was a busy promenade throughout the day. Some even braved a dip in the sea!
East Anglian-based forecaster Weatherquest has said that the rest of the pro-longed weekend is set to be dry and sunny before more "unsettled" weather arrives at the end of next week.
Forecaster Chris Bell has said temperatures may begin to cool off towards Easter Sunday, with clouds expected on Monday which is expected to make it the coolest day of the Easter bank holiday weekend, however inland temperatures are expected to hit the upper teens.
Mr Bell said: "Generally speaking, it will be a very nice Easter weekend. It does look as though it will be a bit more unsettled towards the end of next week."
Parts of the UK are expected to be warmer than Greece and Turkey as temperatures soar to 23C.
