White Lion Area Suffolk Coast
Overlooking the shingle beach and just a few minutes from the beautiful high street, The Best Western White Lion Hotel in Aldeburgh is wonderful hotel in Suffolk.
Within easy reach of London, the South-East and the Midland, Aldeburgh is a quiet but popular seaside resort. It has managed to escape brash commercialism in favour of retaining the charm and genteel atmosphere of a bygone age. With its relaxed pace and calming atmosphere you’ll soon forget all about life in the city.
A flourishing town, which developed after the prosperous medieval fishing and ship-building centre of Slaughden was destroyed by the sea, it is today best known for the brightly coloured fishing boats which line the shingle beach and the world-renowned Aldeburgh Festival, based at nearby Snape Maltings.
Situated in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Aldeburgh makes an ideal base from which to explore the area. There are many walks, both coast and country, and a number of nature reserves, including Havergate Island and RSPB Minsmere. There is also excellent sailing on the River Alde and golfers are spoilt for choice with some excellent Suffolk golf courses at Thorpeness and Aldeburgh.
