Things To Do in Aldeburgh, Suffolk
Located in the quintessential coastal town of Aldeburgh, there is a lot on offer for visitors. Aldeburgh is a historical town which rose to prominence in the 16th century when it was a leading port and had a successful shipbuilding industry.
The Moot Hall and Napoleonic era Martello Tower are testament to its rich past. Tourism has been a key industry in the town since the 19th century and visitors are still attracted to its Blue Flag shingle beach, yacht and sailing clubs and the fisherman huts where fresh fish is still sold daily.
It was home to the composer Benjamin Britten and enjoys a lively festival scene today, thanks in part to the Aldeburgh Festival that Britten set up in 1948.
There are other festivals for the arts, literature, poetry, documentary films and food throughout the year so visitors are advised to check the festival calendar before arriving.
The surrounding countryside is also not to be underestimated. The gentle landscape is perfect for exploring by foot, notably along the River Alde and there are plenty of pubs to pop into along the route.
The nearby town of Southwold is just along the coast from Aldeburgh and is home to the RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve where visitors are invited to discover some of the UK’s rarest wildlife.
An impressive variety of birds, including avocets, bearded tits and bitterns reside at the Reserve and a lucky few visitors have even seen otters in the reed bed pools.
Visitors to Southwold should also consider a trip to Adnams Brewery where beer has been made on the site of their brewery for over 670 years.
Take a tour around the brewery and sample some of the beers or visit the Copper House Distillery where Adnams’ range of spirits are made. You can even take part in their gin making classes if you like something a little stronger.
Owls Roost is a fantastic choice for couples looking for a cute bolthole near the coast in which they can relax but also be centrally located.
It is perfect for unwinding in after a day exploring the nearby coastline, the local town and learning more about local history.
The cottage is also an excellent choice for nature spotting and walking in the local area. The private garden is the perfect setting for an al fresco breakfast before setting out for the day.
Aldeburgh has something to offer history enthusiasts and culture vultures alike and its busy festival programme makes it a great place to visit throughout the year.
There is plenty to do with the seaside being just a twenty-minute walk away and guests can also enjoy walks along the River Alde and surrounding area, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
