Aldeburgh Travel Guide


Aldeburgh (pronounced orl-bruh) is a quiet seaside resort, except in June, when the town fills with people attending the noted Aldeburgh Festival. Its beach is backed by a promenade lined with candy-color dwellings. The 20th-century composer Benjamin Britten lived here for some time. He was interested in the story of Aldeburgh's native son, poet George Crabbe (1754–1832), and turned his life story into Peter Grimes, a celebrated opera that perfectly captures the atmosphere of the Suffolk Coast.
