Visited Lavenham at the weekend and it is simply beautiful. Old buildings beautiful shops plenty of places to eat and drink. Lovely atmosphere and of course the Guildhall which is worth a visit. Free parking and circular walk (3 miles). A must visit.

Lovely town for a stroll around. Many tea rooms and small independent shops. Would recommend a visit to the church for their scones or treat yourself with afternoon tea at The Swan.

The Guildhall was of great interest, particularly helped by a very knowledgeable guide, who gave us a real insight into the history of the area. A town full of wonderful architecture. Good coffee shops too when you want a rest!
