Suffolk’s arty ambassador
Aldeburgh is one of the gems of the Suffolk coast. The seaside promenade is beautifully lined with pastel-coloured villas and offers a lovely backdrop to a day spent relaxing on the pebble beach. Treat your loved one to a cottage holiday in Aldeburgh and they will not be disappointed, particularly if they enjoy that small town feel of independent book stores, art galleries, and boutique clothes shops. A last minute trip to Aldeburgh should always be rounded off with a spot of classical music, and you are certain to find some. The town is world-renowned for the Aldeburgh Festival, a classical music festival held in June each year, having been founded by Benjamin Britten back in 1948.
