Vikings besieged Woodbridge this weekend at their annual maritime festival, with the river filled with impressive longships, yachts and rowing boats as tourists soaked up the town’s heritage.
Visitors could enjoy music from traditional bands and contemporary musicians from across Suffolk while the water was host to celebrations of all things nautical.
The history of Woodbidge was also top of the festival’s agenda, with lectures and films for those wishing to delve in to the past, and Viking warfare classes for children wanting to experience it. Event organiser Paul Webster thanked the entire organising committee for another successful year.
He said: “The weather obviously helped but all in all we are very pleased with the way it has gone.
“We hope people have enjoyed the heritage of the town - it has been good to promote Woodbridge’s proud history.”
