Saxmundham is an historic Market Town on the old Coaching Route from London, and retains a Georgian and Victorian appearance. You can walk the Town Trail to learn about Saxmundham’s past and see glimpses of a bygone era such as the pretty Grade II Listed houses in Angel Yard and the old water pump in the Market Place.
Today, Saxmundham is a friendly little town welcoming visitors. In and around the High Street there is a range of independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants plus two supermarkets - Tesco and Waitrose. The town also has two Art galleries and a local history Museum.
Maps and guide books can be bought from the well-stocked Stationers, and logs from the hardware shop. The town's traditional butchers sells locally-reared meat plus delicious pies and sausages made on the premises. The Bakery van and fresh fish stall are in Fromus Square once a week. Our Street Market is on Wednesdays, and we have a Farm Shop just 1 mile out of town.
