The following are the places/things we like but if you find other places worth a visit please let us know so that we can add them to the list.
There is a map in the cottage and a couple of books detailing some of the places mentioned below, plus many more that we have yet to visit.
Aldeburgh is a lovely town on the river Alde and was the home of Benjamin Britten. On Aldeburgh's beach to the north of the town is a sea shell sculpture named 'The Scallop' created by local artist Maggie Hambling in tribute to Benjamin Britten. Freshly caught fish and seafood are sold from the little fishermen's sheds on the shingle beach.
