the most famous of the wool towns, Lavenham once enjoyed such a high standing
that in the reign of Henry VIII it was ranked as the fourteenth wealthiest town
The appearance of the town has changed little over the years: half-timbered crooked houses lean impossibly over the narrow streets, while the magnificent Swan Hotel makes a striking feature on our beautiful High Street. The picturesque Market Place is home to the
famous National Trust Lavenham
Guildhall, Little Hall, as well as a host of shops, restaurants and our excellent Tourist Information Centre.
Lavenham has been
described as the "finest medieval town in England" and has more than
300 buildings listed as being of architectural and historical
interest. Despite being steeped in history, the town is bang up to date with what it has to offer the modern day visitor.
