Aldeburgh

The popular seaside town of Aldeburgh, home of Benjamin Britten and the famous Aldeburgh Fish and Chips, is a must-visit for anyone staying in Suffolk. The shop-lined high street runs from one end of the town to the other and here you can find a selection of both independent and national-chain shops, cafés, galleries, pubs, a cinema that's been active since 1919 and more often than not, a long winding queue for the fish and chip shops.

Things to See and Do

There's much to see and do in Aldeburgh; The Red house, where Benjamin Britten lived, is now the home of the Britten-Pears Foundation and you can visit the studio where Britten composed including the Gallery, library and the gardens. The famous Aldeburgh Scallop, designed by Suffolk-born Maggi Hambling and made from steel by Aldeburgh steelworks can be found to the North of the town on the beach as you head towards Thorpeness. Heading South towards Orford, you'll find the Martello Tower, a 19th Century fortification formed a defensive line along the coast, keeping the invading Napoleonic armies at bay.
