The Red House in Aldeburgh Britten Pears Arts maintains one of the UK’s most important centres for music research. The archive and library holdings of manuscripts and other source materials are unrivalled in their breadth and depth by any other single composer collection. In addition the Foundation holds their extensive art collection as well as number of other important related collections.

The archive collections are open to all during weekday visiting hours, by appointment for researchers, in the Reading Room of the purpose-built Archive. This award-winning building was designed by Stanton Williams and opened for Britten’s centenary year in 2013.
