All About Aldeburgh

Aldeburgh is world-renowned thanks to its connection with Benjamin Britten, the founder of the Aldeburgh Festival, which takes place in June every year. Pastel-coloured 19th Century holiday villas line the promenade and to the east, the pebble beach with fisherman's huts selling the daily catch.

Aldeburgh has a rich cultural identity and is home to the Aldeburgh Literary Festival, multiple galleries and iconic sculptures as well as the Aldeburgh Music Club started by Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears in 1952. 

On the high street you will find a diverse mix of independent retailers, the towns famous fish and chip shops, cafes, restaurants and a number of galleries. 

The town gets its name from 'Alde' and 'burgh' meaning 'old fort' and is a former Tudor port given borough status by Henry VIII himself.
