Aldeburgh is a quaint seaside town, unspoilt by modern times, whose predominantly shingle beach stretches for a considerable distance and shelves quite steeply to the sea. There are also sandy areas of the beach which are particularly exposed at low tide. A wide open promenade runs alongside, at beach level, passing many of Aldeburgh’s distinctive attractions – The Moot hall, lookout towers, lifeboat station etc, – offering extensive views up the coastline to Thorpeness and down to Orford Ness.
