Make the most of your Trip to the Aldeburgh Festival

Whether it's your first trip to the Aldeburgh Festival or you are a seasoned concert goer, The Suffolk Coast is here to help you make the most of your time during your visit.

If you are yet to book a place to stay, Aldeburgh Bay Holidays provide a wide range of self-catering accommodation. Choose from a beach lodge, traditional cottage or a contemporary apartment for two, many of which are the perfect place to explore our Suffolk Coastline.

Brudenell-1If you would rather put your feet up, the stylish rooms at both The White Lion and The Brudenell are idyllic places to rest your head after a late night concert at Snape Maltings. You can also enjoy a pre-concert meal at Brasserie Bleue (where you can enjoy a cocktail or two also!) or the Brudenell Seafood and Grill.

To set you up for the day, you are spoilt with a wide selection of cafes serving breakfast and brunch. The AM Cafe on the High Street serves freshly squeezed juices, excellent coffee, organic eggs, kedgeree and traditional breakfasts. Or for elevenses, be sure to stop by the Cragg Sisters Tea Room, where you can choose from a selection of black, white, Oolong, and herbal teas to accompany your sandwiches and scones.

Aldeburgh-South-Beach-Lookout-by-Martin-ThomasIf you find yourself with a bit of time to spare, while away an hour or two with a visit to the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout and Art House, and browse the shops for locally made crafts and homewares at Snape Maltings.
