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.

Although it rained all day when we went, we still enjoyed the quaint village and the beautiful buildings. We have afternoon tea in the Guildhall which was very scrummy . The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Would definatlely go again, hopefully when it wasnt raining.

We visited Lavenham and what a pretty place. The Guildhall was full of character we had afternoon tea there. The buildings were very old and leaning into one another amazing to see.
