About the area

Lavenham gained it's wealth in the 14th and 15th Centurys through it's association with the wool trade and hence is known as one of the Wool Towns. The buildings and architecture date from the 15th century and have remained relatively unchanged due to the decline of the industry in the 16th Century. There are some fascinating places to explore, not least the Grade I listed church of St Peter and St Paul and the Guildhall which tells the history of the town.

The old railway line is now a footpath leading from Lavenham to Long Melford travelling through the local countryside including a site of scientific special interest. The path finishes at Melford Hall, a national trust property situated on the High Street in Long Melford, another of the wool towns. The Hall also boasts an association with Beatrix Potter, through her friendship with the owners.

There are a number of other towns with historical importance in the area. Sudbury hosts the Gainsborough museum, where Thomas Gainsborough grew up. Having trained in London he returned to Suffolk as a portrait painter. Bury St Edmunds is a short drive away from Lavenham and has the only working Regency playhouse, The Theatre Royal in the country. Besides the plays, you are able to tour the theatre to learn more about its past. The Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds are also worth visiting and have a wide programme of events on besides the changing floral displays in the gardens. There are lots of other hidden gems to explore in the area and if you fancy going slightly further afield, the coast has some beautiful landscapes and beaches as well.
