More Information...

This sand and shingle beach is probably the best known of all Suffolk's beaches. Backing on to the pretty seaside town of Aldeburgh there are no shortage of facilities either. Aldeburgh has plenty to explore on and around the beach. Along the beach front are any number of quirky historic buildings. These include the 400 year old Moot Hall, a Martello tower, a converted windmill and a Norman church. There is cultural heritage here too; composer Benjamin Britten is strongly linked with the town and there is a monument to him on the beach - the Scallop. The art scene remains vibrant in Aldeburgh with a number of galleries, most notably Caroline Wiseman's housed in the South Lookout right on the beach. However, the best cultural experience to be had in the town are fish and chips which have been rated as the best on the East coast!
