Sculpture of a scallop shell Maggi HamblingAldeburgh lies in Suffolk, a county of picturesque well-preserved towns, villages of colour-wash and thatched cottages and a fine selection of medieval churches. Suffolk borders Norfolk to the north, Cambridgeshire to the west and Essex to the south, with the North Sea lying to the east. Its county town is Ipswich and other important towns include Lowestoft and Bury St Edmunds. The county is noted for having been the home to two well-regarded painters, Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable - the Stour Valley area is known as "Constable Country" - and the famous composer Benjamin Britten.

Attractions The Moot Hall. Aldeburgh. The Moot Hall was once, as long ago as the middle of the 16th century, in the centre of Aldeburgh. By the beginning of the 17th century houses were being lost to the sea and a hundred years later there was little more to the East of the Moot Hall than there is today, it is now only a few yards from the beach. The Moot Hall is now the meeting place of the Town Council and, upstairs, a small, but interesting, museum. Location: In the centre of Aldeburgh.
