Aldeburgh and the surrounding area has inspired many authors and poets in the past but the most famous son of the town is Benjamin Britten who founded the Aldeburgh Music Festival which now has worldwide acclaim and is held every year in June at Snape Maltings. Fishermen still pull their colourful boats up on the shingle beach and sell fresh fish from the picturesque huts. The wide, mainly Georgian high street has many attractive buildings whilst the seafront properties all have commanding views of the beach and the North Sea. Boating is popular on the nearby Alde estuary where a large variety of yachts can be seen at summer weekends.

LocationAldeburgh

Aldeburgh has a pretty beach front with colourful villas and stunning views both seawards and inland to the River Alde. As well as a boating lake, there is also a yacht club which offers lessons and the high street has a wide range of craft and boutique shops, antique stores and a few pubs to choose from. The town is famous for is its ties to the composer Benjamin Britten and the Aldeburgh festival is a great celebration of classical music, there is also a vibrant music and arts scene with many art galleries through the resort.

Although much of the original town has been lost to coastal erosion there are still a few fascinating Tudor buildings including its Norman church, the Moot Hall which also houses the local museum and the Martello Tower, a defensive tower at the mouth of the peninsula. For a shopping day out, visit the Snape Maltings art centre which has gift shops, galleries and the concert hall which has a diverse programme of music throughout the year.

The surrounding area of wetlands and heathland are home to many rare species and moor ponies. Guided walks are available from the RSPB, or you can take a stroll along the estuary. The Meare at nearby Thorpeness is well worth a visit; here you can hire a boat or canoe and take a leisurely sail around the lake.

Suffolk

The somewhat curious county of Suffolk forms a part of the region known as East Anglia. Its eastern edge is bounded by the North Sea, with neighbouring Norfolk to the north and Essex to the south. The county of Cambridgeshire lies to the west. It has no cities and no motorways, but it does have many gardens and ruins and history in spades, from the Magna Carta to the Saxon relics of Sutton Hoo.

Unusual (for Britain) timber-framed buildings, dating back to the 16th century, vie with Tudor mansions in the attractive streets of market towns. In common with Norfolk, it is a fairly flat county, with much of its area devoted to farming and other rural pursuits. Its coastal geology of sand and clay, combined with the longshore drift current of the sea, means that the land is eroding constantly. Sea defences protect many of the towns but, equally, a good deal of property has been lost as the cliffs are worn away, and more is threatened.

Suffolk is famous throughout the UK for its distinctive dialect, horse racing (the town of Newmarket is the epicentre of British racing) and the arts. Festivals and other shows are common, and fish and chips and Adnam's ale are the order of the day.

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
