Essential Suffolk is the glossy lifestyle magazine celebrating life our county - a showcase for the ultimate in good living from homes, fashion and jewellery to art, theatre, food and drink. We publish six issues a year and each time a free, though priceless, copy of the magazine is distributed to more than 6,000 of the best homes in Suffolk via Royal Mail. The select distribution list is unique and unrivalled. Every copy has been individually targeted to end up in the hands of the county’s elite or in homes that we have calculated have above average levels of disposable income. In choosing homes their market value, location and condition were all considered with each road within the distribution area individually visited. Further copies of Essential Suffolk are also distributed to selected venues including top end hotels, selected waiting areas and the like. From our research the readers of Essential Suffolk are successful, affluent, active consumers, socially mobile, community focussed and Suffolk centric.
