As of April 2006 there were 410[1] Grade I listed buildings in Suffolk, England. In the United Kingdom, the term listed building refers to a building or other structure officially designated as being of "exceptional architectural or historic special interest"; Grade I structures are those considered to be "buildings of "exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important. Just 2.5% of listed buildings are Grade I." The total number of listed buildings in England is 372,905.[2] In England, the authority for listing under the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990[3] rests with English Heritage, a non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

The non-metropolitan county of Suffolk consists of seven districts: these are Ipswich, the capital, Suffolk Coastal, Waveney, Mid Suffolk, Babergh, Forest Heath and St Edmundsbury.

The list has been divided into the following geographical areas, representing each all the Grade I listed buildings in a single district:
