It boasts the Guildhall of Corpus Christi a stunning early 16th century timber-framed building with museum. Situated in the market place. Nearby the Little Hall is worth a visit.

The Swan Inn is particularly characterful with a lovely 'beamy' interior. The Great House in the Market Place is a reknowned restaurant. The Angel Inn next door is excellent too. Memsaab is a very good Indian Restaurant indeed.

You might want to wander 100 yards or so to see (the outside of) Shilling Grange where Ann and Jane Taylor lived. They wrote 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' there - you can even see the little window they sat at. It is a private house and not open to the public.

Lavenham boasts several antique shops, galleries, gift shops etc. all within very easy walking distance.

There is a French Market occasionally - with many french trader's food and other produce stalls.
