Things to do in Aldeburgh, Suffolk
Aldbeburgh was made famous in recent times by the refurbishment of the Snape Maltings on the site of a former brewery. The magnificent concert hall is the setting for music and literary festivals. Outside are stone statues by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
The rest of the Maltings has a cafe, shops and exhibition of how the site was once used.
Aldeburgh town itself is further down the road and has the claim to fame of having a super fish and chip shop which visitors frequent from far and wide. There is a spectacular statue on the beach which despicts an open shell. It is by Maggie Hamblin which was put there to commemorate Benjamin Britten.
