Visit Long Melford

Long Melford is one of Suffolk’s most appealing and attractive country villages, with breath-taking scenery and fascinating historical buildings.

Long Melford's name derives from the village’s original layout with a long main street - the longest High Street in the UK - that stretches the entire length of the town. Our High Street is called Hall Street and you are encouraged to walk the whole way along this impressively lengthy street to enjoy a fantastic array of Art Galleries, restaurants, pubs and shops selling everything from clothing, china and books, to furnishings, kitchenware and food. The majority of the shops are independent and their quality of produce and service reflects this.

There is a thriving arts scene in Long Melford with various Art Galleries scattered along Hall Street. Many of these Galleries feature an on-going programme of exhibitions from local and international artists working in a multitude of styles, using various mediums and techniques, so you're sure to find something of interest.

For fans of classical and jazz music, the Long Melford Music Association holds regular concerts and recitals in Holy Trinity Church. The Church, once a 15th Century wool Church and located at the top of the village on the Green, is a spectacular sight in itself. Close to the Church are two magnificent grand Tudor mansions that are also definitely worth a visit - Kentwell Hall, surrounded by a moat and beautiful gardens, and Melford Hall, a large Elizabethan house managed by the National Trust.

The village has always had a wonderful reputation for antiques, and the well-known BBC television series Lovejoy was filmed here. There are a number of treasures still to be sought out in the antique shops in Long Melford.

Long Melford is also an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding areas as there are plenty of places of note nearby, including medieval Lavenham and the ancient market town of Sudbury. Constable Country just a few miles away makes for a tranquil and relaxing day out, and there are a number of activities to enjoy on the River Stour such as boating, fishing, walking and cycling.

Also close by for day trips are Bury St Edmunds, home of the ruins at the Abbey; Ipswich, with its vibrant marina and excellent shops & restaurants; Hadleigh, a great place to stroll to the River Brett or visit the market; plus Cavendish and its rambling Village Green.
