Discover Aldeburgh's maritime past and cultural links
A favourite holiday destination since Victorian times, Aldeburgh on Suffolk’s Heritage Coast is also a magnet for musicians, artists and writers.
Take a stroll along the Sailor’s Path, a six mile gentle trail that makes its way through the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Once travelled by honest sailors, it also attracted the odd smuggler who would lurk along the path, ready to assail anyone who discovered them.
From there, head to Snape – the landscape which charmed and inspired one of Britain’s greatest composers, Benjamin Britten. Pass by the iconic stainless steel scallop on Aldeburgh beach created by controversial figure, Maggi Hambling CBE, and spot the imposing figure above the Martello Tower by Sir Anthony Gormely to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Landmark Trust, all before heading for a well-deserved spot of comfort at The Brudenell or The White Lion Hotels.
