Aldeburgh is a small and well-to-do seaside town with a long, pretty high street parallel to the seafront one block over. On the shingle beach, a Maggi Hambling sculpture is dedicated to the town’s most famous resident, composer Benjamin Britten, who founded the annual Aldeburgh Festival. An arts cinema, a lovely bookshop, an excellent butcher, some interesting delis and several gift, homeware and clothes shops makes it a good destination for a seaside walk and a bit of browsing. There's a local history museum in the Moot Hall on the seafront, near the small huts selling the catch of the day.
