|A warm Suffolk welcome awaits in Aldeburgh, a quiet and unspoilt seaside resort where many swap the hustle and bustle of their daily routine for bracing walks by the sea, leisurely lunches and retail therapy. |
A Suffolk break is closer than you think with good links to Aldeburgh from London, the South-East and the Midlands. Many visit this charming town, with its shingle and pebble beach lined with brightly coloured fishing boats, to soak up the genteel atmosphere.
See the wooden huts where fishermen sell freshly caught fish straight from the sea and look out for the "Scallop", a sculpture dedicated to Benjamin Britten, one of the founding members of the Aldeburgh Festival. Visit in June to enjoy this world-renowned celebration of classical and new music performed at nearby Snape Maltings.
Aldeburgh also makes a great base from which to explore the surrounding Suffolk countryside. There are many walks, both coast and country, and a number of nature reserves, including Havergate Island and RSPB Minsmere. There is sailing on the River Alde and also some excellent golf courses in Suffolk at Thorpeness and Aldeburgh.
With a lovely selection of Suffolk hotels and also self catering apartments to choose from, come and visit Suffolk soon!
