"Picturesque English Village" Lavenham by ratherton

Lavenham Travel Guide: 28 reviews and 111 photos

Lavenham in Suffolk is the classic example of an English village. It is full of classic timber houses and antique shops dating back to medieval and Tudor times. The population is less than 2,000 so it's quite a small place but in the summer, it's busy with tourists.

It's location in rural Suffolk means it's only really accessable by car but once there it's a beautiful place to walk around for a few hours. The best thing to do is stop here as part of a day of travelling around rural Suffolk.
