It was the privacy which attracted Britten to move away from the busy Aldeburgh seafront to the tranquil and secluded Red House.
The Red House
Suffolk, IP15 5PZ
From the A12, take the A1094 to Aldeburgh. Follow the brown sign straight on to 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’.
Users of satnav and online mapping systems beware: you may be misdirected into Linden Close, from where there is no access to our site.
Due to limited onsite parking we offer a free shuttle bus during school holidays covering our opening hours in May–August, Tuesday–Saturday 1-5pm.
It runs on a circular route every 30 minutes at the approximate times shown below.
