Having completed this hub I have found that traffic is extremely low, so would appreciate it if you could kindly check it over and tell me how I can improve it.

I see this hub as being a bit problematic (although it's very good). No one is searching for "guide to Suffolk," so I assume you are going after the keyword "Suffolk." I think if you get more good one-way, relevant backlinks, you have a shot to rank on the first page of the search results. The problem with that is that there's Suffolk County, which is what you wrote about, Suffolk in England, one in Virginia, Suffolk University--get the point? Being on page one for "Suffolk" is better than nothing, but may not result in huge traffic.
Looking at the sites that are returned on page 1 for "Suffolk County," I don't think you stand a chance of ranking there as they're mostly PR 4 and higher sites.
If I were you, I'd bump up my tags, look to rank for some of your secondary keywords, and get as many backlinks as you can.
I reviewed your hub and I would suggest using a more descriptive title, to specify the location.
You would also want to set your first text capsule up, so it can support Google Adsense ad along side of it. That means, you have to put more text inside your first text capsule.
A little bit more will trigger the ad to appear next to it. Remember, to keep in mind, the word wrapping of text when something is along side a text capsule will create long paragraphs of text, if your sentences are not spaced apart.
The keywords you want to use should be not only related to what your hub is about, but how people are going to search for it. If you want your hub for vacation spots? or weekend getaways? then include those sort of keywords.
Also, you could put in a secondary amazon set of links, next to your other set, so you don't have your amazon descriptions leaving a "white" space in the middle of your hub.
I know the hubtrail tags are specific to the continent, then state or terroritory or country- (i.e., hubtrail-americas and hubtrail-virginia, if you're talking about those in the states) or (hubtrail-England and hubtrail-UK), as an example.
Also, I am not sure how much traffic is being achieved through hubtrail websites and feeds, but you haven't setup a feed on your hub, so as to include your hub into the mix.
You did a nice job on the hub. I hope that helped.
I think the hub looks fantastic. Very informative, and covers the topic very well. Good work!

I made a video game hub that I published in early December 2010. This hub went viral (to an extent). It started to receive 1000 views a day. The views would change a bit between 650-1000, but 1000 was the peak. Even...
