Welcome To the Aldeburgh website - the only community
website devoted to promoting the town and its many attractions.
Aldeburgh is a small seaside town on the unspoilt East Suffolk coast.
In the 16th Century it was a thriving port and shipbuilding area,
becoming a fishing village and seaside resort in the 19tr Century.
Aldeburgh provides an excellent base for those wanting a peaceful
seaside holiday during which they can enjoy the miles of unspoilt
shingle coastline and heath lands of this remarkable area.
There are many excellent restaurants and pubs to suit all tastes
and budgets - not forgetting the 'famous' Aldeburgh fish and chip
shop, a wide selection of cottages to rent, hotels to stay at, bed
and breakfast accommodation to suit all requirements. Notable town
landmarks include the Moot Hall which, for the past 400 years the
meeting place of Aldeburgh Town Council, the church of St Peter
and St Paul, noted for its memorial window dedicated to the memory
of Benjamin Britten and designed by John Piper. Britten, Peter Pears
and Imogen HoIst are all buried in Aldeburgh Churchyard, as is Elizabeth
Garrett Anderson, England's first female doctor. There is also a
memorial to the crew of the Aldeburgh lifeboat, who perished in
1899. We hope you enjoy Aldeburgh.

Hambling - She is famous for many things: her wild, gestural brushstrokes;
always being photographed with a cigarette; her controversial sculpture,
Scallop on Aldeburgh beach; refusing an honorary doctorate; being
outspoken on many subjects; being described as a 'gay icon'. Thinking
of the name Maggi Hambling brings to mind so many soundbites, it makes
it hard to look at her artwork in isolation when the presence of the
artist is so strong. For more information click
