Length: 6 mi • Est. 2 h 43 m
A circular walk through Aldeburgh and Slaughden, then inland following the River Alde before crossing Aldeburgh Marshes to return to the town centre. The walk is mainly on level ground with no stiles but several gates and wooden bridges. You are likely to encounter cattle in one field towards the end of the walk, so take extra care here. Approximate time for the walk is 2.5 to 3 hours. Public toilets are available in Aldeburgh at Moot Hall and Slaughden Quay. Aldeburgh has many interesting buildings and shops and its most famous resident was Benjamin Britten. Slaughden was once a thriving fishing port and has an interesting history being well worth a visit.Show more

Length: 4.1 mi • Est. 1 h 48 m
An easy flat circular walk from the Suffolk coastal town of Aldeburgh along a disused railway line to Thorpeness, returning back to Aldeburgh along the beach. There are no stiles or gates along the route and no livestock. It's mandatory to keep dogs on a lead on the outward stretch along the disused rail line, no bad thing as there are several muddy streams running alongside, they will however be rewarded on the return journey with off-lead fun and ample opportunities to swim in the sea. Caution will be needed when walking alongside the Thorpeness golf course.Show more
