At my wife's request we came to attend the ETO performance of Tosca. An amazing setting in the midst of Suffolk countryside for such an evening. The Maltings is a range of old converted buildings comprising small retail shops and eateries but the centrepiece is...More

Really nice buildings and shops but everything was so expensive. Most of the goods sold are available elsewhere at half the cost. It is a nice site though which would be lovely to walk round on a summer's day

Excellent shopping with unusual and attractive homewares and furnishings at fairly reasonable prices. Food in the cafe upstairs was average and be prepared to wait around an hour for your meal even when it is not full of customers.

Lovely shopping complex as well as the iconic concert hall, all set by the marshes and the river Alde.

The 'Maltings' has so much to offer; from it wonderful concert hall, excellent but pricey shops and beautiful walks. Something for everyone. The day we visited it was cold and rainy so the boutiques pulled us in. What a fantastic place - pricey but fun!

Easy to find but in such a tucked away spot. Amazingly restored Maltings turned into a top notch music venue. Loved having my daughters school able to perform at such a professional location. They really enjoyed having their own dressing room. A great day!!
