Snape Maltings sits on the bank of the River Alde, surrounded by an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just six miles from Aldeburgh. Our beautiful heritage site, with its converted Victorian buildings, is home to independent shops, galleries, a restaurant and dog-friendly café, and several performance venues – including the world-famous Snape Maltings Concert Hall. If you are looking for things to do in Suffolk, this family-friendly venue has everything you need.

Every purchase you make at Snape Maltings supports the charitable work of our parent charity, Britten Pears Arts.
