Fodor's Expert Review Snape Maltings
It's worth a stop to take in the peaceful River Alde location of this cultural center. It includes nine art galleries and crafts shops in distinctive large brick buildings once used to malt barley, plus a café and tearoom. There's a farmers' market on the first Saturday of the month, a major food festival in September, and a Benjamin Britten festival in October. Leisurely 45-minute river cruises (£7.50) leave from the quayside in spring and summer. From the Maltings you can stroll out along an elevated trail through some reed marshes for beautiful views—just watch for uneven ground.
