A Suffolk coastal town has been named as one of 10 prettiest towns in the UK by an influential travel magazine.

Aldeburgh was chosen as one of the prettiest towns in the country by Condé Nast Traveller. The list includes towns ranging from St Ives in Cornwall and Whitby in Yorkshire, to North Berwick in East Lothian, Scotland.

The magazine recommends Aldeburgh for its "big Suffolk skies and ruler straight horizon", along with the town's Festival of Music (3 - 26 June 2022) and the newer Literary Festival (10 - 12 September 2022).

The Festival of Music, founded by composer Benjamin Britten, will be in its 73rd year in 2022, and will be taking place in venues along the Suffolk Coast — including at Snape Maltings concert hall. 

Condé Nast Traveller described the high street as "stepping back in time" and pointed out the "sweetie coloured houses".
