The website added: "The town is also incredibly well known for its fish and chips where queues have been reported to be as long as 100 people.

"Residents choose Aldeburgh for its stunning coastal scenery, the pace of life and the friendly atmosphere.

"Naturally, as with all seaside towns, there are a number of second homes but there is a strong community spirit in Aldeburgh that isn’t always present in coastal locations.

"Aldeburgh boasts a number of independent shops and galleries and for those who enjoy outdoor activities, there are many water sports possible in the area along with sailing and golf."

"Frequent and seasonal food markets are held on Market Hill.
