Lavenham - All Year Round
Back to list
Lavenham is one of the best preserved medieval villages in the UK, boasting some 320 listed timber-framed buildings, many of them protected by English Heritage. This unique village was created some 750 years ago by Henry III when he granted Lavenham ‘market status’ which stimulated the most prosperous period in the village’s history. Today Lavenham is a thriving village with a strong community spirit. It has a hub of art galleries, some fantastic restaurants, plenty of cafes and pubs for pit stops, and lots of interesting buildings to visit. The finest food and drink – and history and beauty by the bucketload.
