It was the privacy that attracted Britten to the tranquil and secluded Red House, away from the busy Aldeburgh seafront.

Address

The Red House
Golf Lane
Aldeburgh
Suffolk, IP15 5PZ

By car

From the A12, take the A1094 to Aldeburgh. Follow the brown sign directing you straight on towards the roundabout. At the roundabout (past the supermarkets on your right), take the first exit: the B1122 Leiston Road. Golf Lane is the second turning on the left, directly opposite the brown sign directing you to ‘The Red House’.

There are two car parks available onsite.

Users of satnav and online mapping systems beware: you may be misdirected into Linden Close, from where there is no access to our site.

Cycling

We encourage cyclists to use our bike shed which is located in car park 2.
