Visit Britten

Aldeburgh Music is an artistic haven set against a breathtaking natural backdrop of reeds, marshes, sea and big skies. It is a place that invites anyone who visits to breathe a little deeper and live life a little more fully, from experiencing music and art and walking and watching wildlife to enjoying the fantastic local food and drink.

From its beginnings as a “modest Festival, with a few concerts given by friends”, Aldeburgh Music has managed to retain an intimate atmosphere that makes visiting a particular pleasure. As well as helping you book your concert tickets, we are also happy to organise backstage tours and advise you about the many other attractions of the Suffolk coast, from walks and reserves to contemporary art and independent shops.

In this section, we explore what makes Aldeburgh and Suffolk special and the practicalities of visiting.
