Lavenham is one of the most picturesque villages in England.

Its winding streets are lined with a charming jumble of Tudor houses and crooked, half-timbered cottages, and on the edge of the village Lavenham’s 15th century Wool Church stands majestically atop a hill.

Known as ‘England’s best preserved medieval village,’ Lavenham was once at the heart of the booming textile trade. The village’s exquisite architecture is reminiscent of its heady days as one of the famous Suffolk Wool Towns.The village has plenty of art galleries, antique shops and attractions, such as the famous National Trust Guildhall, the magnificent Church and Little Hall Museum.

The Great House is one of the main sponsors for the Lavenham Sinfonia, which produces 4 wonderful classical music concerts per year. For programme and details you can visit the Lavenham Sinfonia Website.
