We went at a weekend when they had a very good flea market. Good array of craft shops and places to eat. There's a theatre there too, which we didn't try. Worth a visit if in the area.

Great place for concerts amidst evocative landscape.Great architecture too. Make sure you check prices in the bar first before ordering drinks during interval or before / after performances. 5 glasses of white wine, 2 soft drinks and 1 beer set me back £35.75!

We popped in to visit on our way to Aldeburgh but were somewhat disappointed that we could not view the concert hall and other units were full of overpriced retail outlets selling anything from small knick knacks to furniture and lighting
