Festival Walk: From the Red House to Snape Maltings

Wednesday 17 June from 9.30am

£20 including lunch and return coach


Part of Aldeburgh Festival

Wednesday 17 June 2020 - 9.30am

This walk, which celebrates the merging of Snape Maltings and the Britten–Pears Foundation, begins at Maggi Hambling’s The Scallop on Aldeburgh beach. We then visit The Red House Library, before taking the Sailors’ Path to Snape Maltings. Walkers will stop for a buffet lunch at the water’s edge at Blackheath House, with its truly magnificent views of the estuary.

After tea at Snape Maltings, and an optional tour of the derelict buildings, shuttle buses will bring walkers back to Aldeburgh.

  • Walkers can set their own pace on the 6.5 mile route.
  • Groups depart Thorpe Rd Car Park at 9.30am, 10am and 10.30am. Please note car parking charges will apply.
