Visiting the UK: Lavenham

The Professor and I went exploring to the medieval village of Lavenham in Suffolk this bank holiday. Lavenham is in particular noted for its 15th century church and half-timbered medieval cottages. There was an art festival going on, but to be honest we didn't see much of it.

It was a grey day and although there were some people walking about, it seemed like the oomph had gone out of the place or perhaps it just is a very sleepy village...? I just think they could have put on a bit more activities in the market square when they had a festival going on to bring in more people.

Anyway, we still enjoyed walking around looking at the cottages and popping in to some antique shops on the high street. A very 'dangerous' activity..., but we were good and just enjoyed browsing!
A quick lunch was also had in a local tea shop.

So, to summarise - a cute place which could have made more out of it self.
Perhaps I will give it another chance on a sunnier day...!


  1. Takk for at du gir oss litt turistinfo også! Kommer til å sjekke bloggen din hvis vi får rotet oss til England en eller annen gang. Drømmer om biltur rundt omkring, kanskje med stopp på noen av "slottene" vi ser i Antiques Roadshow :)

  2. Så fint. Vi prater om å ta oss en tur til UK. Såå mye jeg har lyst til å oppleve.
    Klem Tove

  3. Været har alltid mye å si for opplevelse av steder, så en solskinnsdag er det kanskje litt mer liv der? Men takk for turen! Så flott ut!

    Klem fra Inger
