Aldeburgh's shops and restaurants are well known in the area and the town is definitely worth visiting even if you don't stay here.

There are lots of interesting independent shops, some excellent restaurants, cafes, takeaways, art galleries, an old-style cinema, small supermarket, bookshop and inviting pubs serving local Adnams bitter, not to forget the famous fish & chip shops.

The coastline is remarkably unspoilt. Its features change as you explore stretches of the seashore, and the special quality of light exerts an irresistible draw on holidaymakers and artists alike. Rural life is never far away from beaches in Suffolk. Dunes back onto grass and fields. The absence of commercialisation is a dream.
