Places of interest in Freston are Freston Tower, St Peters' Church and Freston Wood. Freston Tower looks out over the River Orwell and is now owned by the Landmark trust.
St Peters’ Church Freston, unfortunately, must be locked as it has been broken into on more than one occasion. On the Church page, there are links to pictures of the inside of this friendly church when it has been decorated for special occasions. If you wish to look inside the church the telephone numbers of the two churchwardens can be found in the porch.
In the churchyard, there is a recently renovated war memorial called Peace.
Freston Wood is renowned for the blanket of bluebells and the wild garlic growing in the wood.
Our pub, The Freston Boot is thriving. The Boot was purchased some years ago by Andrew and Robert Paul. It has recently been renovated and the Landlord is Damon Jeffrey. You can find out more about it on the Boot Website http://www.thefrestonboot.co.uk/.
