Since I moved to Suffolk I have wanted to visit here. Aldeburgh is a gorgeous seaside village with a beautiful shingle beach where fresh fish are caught and sold daily. We couldn’t help but pick up some smoked mackerel and herring whilst we were there. Aldeburgh means ‘old fort’ and used to be have a flourishing ship building industry where Sir Francis Drake had two of his ships built. Now it is a popular seaside destination and I can see why, full of colourful houses, cafes and fish and chip shops. Despite the weather being mostly cloudy it was still a gorgeous day and I couldn’t resist a quick paddle in the sea.
