Staithes has often been regarded simply as a traditional fishingvillage. However, the village is set in some spectacularly ruggedcoastlines, rich in marine life and boasting of a proud maritime historydating back millennia.

Be aware though that parking is notallowed anywhere in the Old Town.


Aldeburgh is a traditional seaside town with plenty to offer thevisiting tourist. A pebble beach runs from the Martello Toweroverlooking the harbour at the south of town to the controversialScallop sculpture in the North.

If you're interested in music then head tothe Red House for an insight into Benjamin Britten's past.
