PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! All of the extra time we've spent at home this year has probably highlighted more than one reason why your house isn't working for you anymore. Whether you've realised you don't need to live in a city now that you can work from home or you'd like to walk out your front door and be at the glorious seaside, many people are escaping to rural towns and villages. A nearby Suffolk village and holiday destination for many Cambridgeshire residents has been named one of the top places in the UK that people want to move to. Garrington, an expert property finding agency, revealed Aldeburgh, Suffolk, was one of the top destinations. Of the top ten places mentioned in Garrington's list, it was the only place in the East of England. Cambridge was mentioned in the report but its high house prices meant it wasn't ranked so positively.

It even has an annual sailing regatta and a week-long carnival. The village itself is absolutely beautiful, and to reach it first requires meandering through the gently rolling hills and forests of Suffolk. Travellers then pass through the new part of the village. Once you pass the huge church you get the first true glimpse of the sea, as the road drops down the hill into the old fishing village which has not changed in decades.

Aldeburgh's claim to fame Aldeburgh was the home of one of the country's most famous composers Benjamin Britten. The village is also the home of actors Miranda Raison and Bill Nighy. Aldeburgh also has strong connections to Cambridge, with various college masters calling it home. It was also the birthplace of suffragist Dame Millicent Fawcett, who founded Newnham College and who has a blue plaque dedicated to her in Trumpington.

Things to do in Aldeburgh There is plenty going on in the deceptively relaxed village. Aldeburgh boasts plenty of independent tea rooms, cafes, a cheese shop and clothing shops as well as a few bigger brands like Crew and Joules. There is also a brilliant independent book shop, which is the perfect place for finding a beach read. There's even an annual sailing regatta and a week-long carnival.
