The name AldeBurgh means "old fort" although this, along with much of the Tudor town, has now been lost to the sea.

In the 16th century, Aldeburgh was a leading port, and had a flourishing ship-building industry. Sir Francis Drake's ships Greyhound and Pelican (later renamed Golden Hind) were both built in Aldeburgh.

The main shopping area in Aldeburgh runs parallel to the shingle beach. It is on this beach that you will find The Scallop, a stainless steel shell which stands about 4 metres high and is dedicated to Benjamin Britten.
