Autumn on the Coast
Date: 19.09.2018
We’re very lucky at the White Lion to be located close to the beachfront in lovely Aldeburgh, a beautiful Suffolk seaside town with an abundance of culture, arts and a growing number of festivals.

While summer in Aldeburgh is stunning, autumn in Aldeburgh is just as beautiful, with lots to see and do as well as fabulous food made from an abundance of fresh, local seasonal produce which is so readily available here and on the Suffolk coast.

Here are some of our favourite autumn things to do in and around Aldeburgh:

Messing about on the water
Thorpeness Meare is the perfect place to while away a few hours on the water and it’s just a short walk from the Aldeburgh shoreline. Spend time bobbing around the Peter Pan islands, hire a rowing boat, kayak, canoe, punt or a sailing boat and take in the stunning centrepiece of this lovely village. The famous House in the Clouds is in the distance too. Our sister hotel, Thorpeness Golf Club and Hotel, overlooks the Meare, so enjoy a spot of lunch there and afterwards play a friendly round of mini golf.

Out and about on two wheels
We’re very lucky here to have miles of beautiful coast and countryside just waiting to be explored, and taking a two-wheeled adventure is the perfect way to do it! You could cycle to nearby Snape Maltings, through an Area of Natural Beauty and stop for a traditional cream tea before heading back.

We can hire you a bike and have a range including mountain bikes and electric to hybrid with childrens’ accessories. Book in advance.

A yesteryear cinema experience
Aldeburgh Cinema celebrates its centenary in 2019. The cinema is a charming, half-timbered building in the spirit of the picture houses of yesteryear. It shows a mix of mainstream and world cinema, theatre and Opera live transmissions and Live on Stage shows, the varied programme has something for everyone. Relax with a glass of wine or an Adnams beer and experience a cinema like no other.

Nature and more
RSPB Minsmere is a fantastic coastal nature reserve with a variety of activities to suite all members of the family. There’s birdwatching and scenic walks, so there are plenty of opportunities to get out your binoculars and spot some of Minsmere’s special birds including avocets, bitterns and nightingales. The Discovery Centre has family-friendly activities or enjoy one of the many self-guided tours.

The Aldeburgh Treasure Trail
A great way to explore and discover Aldeburgh in a whole new light is with an interactive treasure trail. Search for the clues dotted around Aldeburgh and its famous landmarks and work out the answers to try and locate the fictional ‘treasure'.
