Aldeburgh - Southeast Odyssey Part 2

After Broomhill, we headed across to Aldeburgh, beautiful coastal resort renowned for its breathtaking scenery and, among the variety of cultural events on offer, its poetry festival in November. We admired Maggi Hambling's shell sculpture and marvelled at the sloping, pebbly beach, which bears no resemblance to the flat, sandy North Sea beaches like Bamburgh, Whitley Bay and Tynemouth which we're more familiar with. The sea was turquoise but choppy, so we decided to give swimming a miss on this occasion, with a thought that we might come back sometime for a longer visit.
