Visit The Red House

The Red House in Aldeburgh is the former home of Britten and Pears and is lovingly preserved and open to all. It cares for the collections left by the two men, including their Archive which holds an extraordinary wealth of material richly documenting their lives. The site is surrounded by a five acre garden offering a peaceful setting to this beautiful corner of Suffolk.
