Nestled in the heart of the stunning Suffolk countryside, Lavenham is one of Englan's finest medieval wool villages. Medieval charm can be found around every corner with its winding streets, thatched cottages and some 320-listed timber framed buildings. This unique village was created some 750 years ago by Hendry III when he granted Lavenham "market status" which stimulated the most prosperous period in the village's history. Today Lavenham is a thriving village with art galleries, restaurants, cafes, pubs and lots of interesting buildings to visit.
As its name implies, this wool town has a long, long High Street, populated by charming independent shops, vibrant art galleries, antique centres, cafes, restaurants, and, of course, typical Suffolk Inns. So, given all of this combined with beautiful architecture and amazing countryside, it is no wonder that this is such a desirable place.
