St Peter and St Paul

Church Close Aldeburgh IP15 1DY

The fourteenth-century church of St Peter and St Paul is as neat and tidy a building as you as you would expect in a place like Aldeburgh,. Not only that, but its main attractions are related to the town's most famous resident, Benjamin Britten, who lived in the town from the 1950s until his death here in 1976. Britten lived on the seafront and later in the Red House on the outskirts of town, and he is buried in the churchyard, with his long-time lover and companion the tenor Peter Pears, who died in 1986 – their headstones lie next door to each other, not far from their friend Imogen Holst, the only child of Gustav Holst the composer, who also lived in Aldeburgh for much of her life until her death in 1984.  Inside there's a church there's a display on Britten and Pears, and a memorial to the eighteenth-century poet amn Aldeburgh residen t George Crabbe.
