Barely ten minutes away from Aldeburgh is the village of Snape, home to Snape Maltings with a range of eateries, shops and galleries. The composer Benjamin Britten spent many of his years here before moving to Aldeburgh itself, his music inspired by the great landscapes and the people of the area. The Aldeburgh Festival brings people to Snape from all over the country as acclaimed musicians from all walks of life perform in the renowned concert halls of the Maltings.

A tad further north of Aldeburgh lies the fascinating village of Thorpeness. Thorpeness began life as a hamlet, then in 1910 a rich, Scottish barrister decided to transform it into a fantastical holiday village where the illustrious and wealthy would visit from their London homes. He created a vast boating lake inspired by his friend’s novel Peter Pan and tourists now revel in the chance to row around the islands of the Meare on a warm, sunny day.
