Map of Britten
21 Kirkley Cliff Road
Britten was born at 21 Kirkley Cliff Road on 22 November 1913 and lived there until 1928, when he went to board at Gresham’s School. The family home on the seafront doubled as his father’s dentist practice and as Britten’s interest in music developed, patients could hear him practising upstairs as they received treatment. His home is now a guesthouse called Britten House.
