Fine food, local brews and idyllic seaside make the perfect ingredients for a tasty weekend away.
Follow your nose to Aldeburgh in September and you’re in for a treat. In recent years this tiny coastal town has developed a reputation for its local food and drink, with people lured to the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival in search of sausages and cider, wild meats and wine.
Held in the historic Snape Maltings, dating back to Victorian times, the festival is fast becoming one of the best in the country – and not just because of the opportunity to pig out.
Alongside 80 food and drink stalls there are live demonstrations, book readings and talks from celebrity chefs and food experts – plus cooking masterclasses and the popular Adnams Drinks Experience, with beer matching, cocktail making and a full history of cider.
