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!

Lavenham prospered from the wool trade in the 15th 16th centuries. With its 15th century church, half-timbered medieval cottages and a great walk. In the medieval period it was among the 20 wealthiest settlements in England.

A beautiful small town. Hundreds of medieval buildings, many painted, and most with open wonky beams! Quiet but with plenty of quality cafes, restaurants and hotels. Not much in the way of shopping but lovely to walk around. The church is well worth a visit...More
