Alton Water Walking & Relaxing

Nothing quite beats a long walk to sweep away the cobwebs and Alton Water is the perfect setting to do just that, any time of the year.

One of the most picturesque places to go walking in Suffolk, whether you want a short, relaxing stroll or a full eight-mile ramble, Alton Water can accommodate your needs.
Of course, you can visit us just to relax too! With our café that looks out across the reservoir, you can enjoy a light bite or refreshment. There are also benches dotted around the reservoir, so you can find the perfect location to simply take in the beautiful surroundings.

Will my children have plenty to do?

While you may want to just relax, we understand that children may have a different plan for you entirely. So, keep them entertained at our outdoor children’s play area.   

Please note, children must be accompanied by an adult while on our play equipment.

Are the walks dog friendly?

Absolutely! We want dogs and their owners to enjoy all that Alton Water has to offer. We do ask that dogs are kept out of the water and on leads at all times.
