Lakenheath Things to Do

  • Planespotting...

    Lakenheath is 1 of 3 airbases within a radius of 5km, operated by the USAF on the Norfolk/Suffolk border...Although the base is a militarily sensitive area, & there is no admission onto the actual base, unlike in other countries, where you can be arrested & held on charges of spying, just for loitering around airfields, not only are...

    There are many nice Forests with trails around-Thetford being the closest with wonderful challenging black trails and the beauty of flowers-they also have a Going Ape adventure climbing in the trees for fun.

  • Tail Spotting

    A favorite past-time of the local Anglo populous is to watch aircraft take off and land at the nearby RAF Lakenheath, home to a US fighter wing.

    The closest pub to my house. A wonderful assortment of villagers, gypsies, and gentle folk. Guinness and Miller on draft.

    Dress Code: No coart or tire required- you can wear jeans and sneakers but please wear something low cut and revealing.

  • Park and watch the take offs and...

    Right down the road in Lakenheath you can see people always parked with their big lens taking pictures of the F 15's roaring round the sky and doing touch and gos. It's fun to see them so close right over head.
