The Red House, Aldeburgh

Benjamin Britten was one of the greatest composers of the twentieth century. He wrote a vast amount of incredible music and wanted everyone to enjoy it – professional and amateur musicians, music enthusiasts, children and families.

**Following the government’s announcement from Thursday 20 May, The Red House visitors will be able to enjoy exhibitions, guided tours and events in the Library and Garden.**

The Red House is the former home of composer Benjamin Britten and singer Peter Pears. The collections left by the two men richly document their lives as performers and creators who made this place their home for nearly twenty years. Their home in Aldeburgh offers a charming snapshot into the two men's lives. Lovingly preserved, the house and gardens are open for all to explore - book your visit today: https://snapemaltings.co.uk/whats-on/visit-the-red-house-aldeburgh/

As well as exploring Britten’s music, visitors can explore the house, with its classic 1950s/60s interiors with a mix of formal and cosy and an eclectic range of books, art, and furniture. The large garden reflects their tastes in flowers and plants are for wandering around and enjoying the peace and quiet of this beautiful corner of Suffolk.
