Lavenham is the perfect place to visit and enjoy an all year round selection of festivals and events. There are many award winning galleries and boutique shops to browse with plenty to do and explore in the surrounding area.

The appearance of the village has changed little over the years: half-timbered crooked houses lean majestically over the narrow streets, while the magnificent Swan Hotel creates a striking feature on the beautiful High Street.   The stunning National Trust Lavenham Guildhall is located in the Market Place which forms the centre of the village.

The Market Place is also home of several shops, The Little Hall and the Tourist Information Centre.

Lavenham has been described many times as the “finest medieval village in England” and has more than 300  buildings listed as being of architectural and historical interest. Despite being steeped in history, the town is up to speed with what it has to offer the discerning  visitor.   An abundance of art galleries, independent lifestyle shops and boutiques, fine dining restaurants, bistro pubs and cafes. A real gem in the Heart of Suffolk, it is the perfect base to explore Suffolk’s countryside and coast.
