They moved in 1957 from their house on the seafront in Aldeburgh to The Red House on the outskirts of the town surrounded by 5 acres of gardens. They lived here from 1957 for nearly twenty years when Britten died in 1976 and Pears ten years later in 1986.
The Red House site is open to the public to explore their home and learn more about Britten’s music. Follow the links below for opening times, events and what to expect on your visit.
