Halesworth is a charming market town, 9 miles from Southwold and the stunning Suffolk Coast. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and delightful villages, the town prides itself on a flourishing blend of the arts, locally produced food, wines and small independent shops.
Visitors looking for cultural delights will be impressed with the choice on offer. The New Cut, an exciting arts venue and vibrant café-bar offers a year-round programme of events, whilst the Halesworth Gallery at Steeple End is the oldest gallery in the town. Housed in fine 17th century former almshouses it provides a beautiful space in which to view contemporary paintings, sculpture, ceramics and textiles.
Housed in the original railway buildings, the Halesworth and District Museum tells the story of the earlier historic life of the town, with the Halesworth Town Trail providing the ideal opportunity to explore the town’s interesting past, including the 15th century Saxon Church.
The pedestrianised Thoroughfare provides an authentic market town shopping experience, centred around independent shops, continuing through to the market place, where the weekly market blends the old with the new.
Halesworth is a haven for food lovers, with its monthly produce market offering some of the finest foods from around the region. Complementing that is wine from the local vineyard, Wissett Wines where you can take a tour to see how it is produced.
