Local Information

Welcome to Aldeburgh Property. A local property hub that will endeavour to give you all the right reasons to move to the beautiful seaside town of Aldeburgh, Suffolk or the surrounding villages of Thorpeness, Snape, Iken, North Warren, Aldringham, Coldfair Green and Friston. We’ll tell you a bit about the town, its history and give you links to the best local Estate Agents, Councils and Schools.

Laying between the mouth of the river Alde and the Suffolk North Sea, Aldeburgh has a population of about 2,500.

It is thought the town has roughly one third of its habitable property as second homes.

Linked to the A12 via the A1094 at Friday Street, Aldeburgh is about 110 miles North East from London, 44 miles South East from Norwich and 26 miles North East from Ipswich.

The nearest railway link is about 7 miles away at Saxmundham making Aldeburgh a viable commuter possibility. Other towns of note that have scenic coastal properties are Southwold to the North and Felixstowe to the South. Slightly inland you have Framlingham and Woodbridge.

Aldeburgh History

There are 64 listed building and monuments with Moot Hall, dating from 1520, as one of the oldest.

Famous as the residence of composer Benjamin Britten, the international Aldeburgh Festival of arts at nearby Snape Maltings was his idea back in 1948. Aldeburgh still has an annual poetry festival and several thriving food festivals.

Although most of it has been lost to the sea, Aldeburgh was a significant Tudor shipbuilding port and was given borough status by Henry VIII in 1529.

Unfortunately, as the river Alde gradually silted up, so did the shipbuilding but Aldeburgh regained its notoriety as a Victorian seaside holiday destination.
