Lavenham- A Suffolk Wool Town


disabled access

Lavenham remains a perfect example of a Suffolk Wool Town. Once the 14th richest town in the country, Lavenham prospered. ‘England's Best Preserved Medieval Village'has streets lined with charming timber-framed houses, and the famous Guildhall of Corpus Christi, once the centre of trade in Lavenham, still exudes an aura of power and grandeur. Similarly, the enormous and lavish Church of St Peter and St Paul is testament to Lavenham's awe-inspiring former wealth.

Behind Lavenham's historic exterior is one of the most exciting towns in Suffolk: a place where you can find exquisite food, enjoy wonderful walks and stay in some of the finest hotels in Britain. You'll find surprises in Lavenham in the places you least expected, such as The Swan Hotel's Airman's bar, where you can raise a glass to old heroes surrounded by an impressive collection of WW2 memorabilia.
