Aldeburgh Beach

Aldeburgh is a quaint and unspoilt seaside town with sand shingle beaches that stretch for miles, and there is plenty to explore on and around the coast. Along the beachfront are any number of quirky historic buildings, including the 400-year-old Moot Hall, a Martello tower, a converted windmill and a Norman church. The Moot Hall, lookout towers and the lifeboat station offer extensive views up the coastline to Thorpeness down to Orford Ness. The art scene also remains vibrant in Aldeburgh, with several galleries, most notably Caroline Wiseman’s housed in the South Lookout right on the beach. Otherwise, you can watch the fishermen pull their boats onto the shingle and sell their catch from a nearby hut while enjoying fresh fish and chips, rated as the best on the East coast!
