Snape Maltings Near Aldeburgh IP17 1SR 01728 688 303

We say

Just off the main road between Aldeburgh and the A12, the village of Snape is best known for the complex of former malthouses known as Snape Maltings, the main site of the Aldeburgh Music Festival and home to one of the finest concert venues in the country and much more besides; indeed the Maltings has grown into quite a commercial behomoth in recent years, with various craft shops and galleries, a food hall, a couple of cafés and a pub, the Plough & Sail. It’s a pleasant place, and you could easily spend a couple of hours strolling around the complex, afterwards maybe taking a walk along the river through the reedbeds to nearby Iken and its church – about two miles in all, and an easy, partly board-walked route. The Maltings also hosts a farmers’ market on the first Saturday of each month, and an annual food festival in September.
