We loved our visit here. This is a fascinating building as well as town. It is beautiful and historic. The houses are old and pastel colored. They are all timber framed and you can see how they have settled over the years with their walls all askew.

Had a lovely morning here, the guides were really helpful and the hall is so interesting, especially the stories. Well worth a visit and also the tea shop does excellent scones. The village is gorgeous and has lots of lovely antique shops.

Not one of the biggest Trust property, but still interesting. Part of the original town of Lavenham. It sits in the town square.

We loved this National Trust property in lovely Lavenham. It is not large but has interesting stories of characters connected to the building in past times. Well worth a visit

Well worth a look at the buildings around the Lavenham square and especially the Guildhall. There is an entrance fee but the magnificence of this old building is worth every penny.
