It was very easy to buy timed tickets to look around Red house. We took my mother-in-law , in a wheelchair , and they had an even smaller one to lend us, which was even more manoeuverable inside the house and galleries. The house is interesting and delightful, it’s as if they’ve just popped out! The volunteers were knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The gallery has an audio tour , which you can download onto your phone. The gallery and exhibition building was very well laid out and everything was beautifully presented. We looked around the magnificent gardens at the end . We couldn’t believe how many flowers were still in bloom . I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this place, whatever the weather whatever the season. The bonus being you can return as many times as you like In a year for free

You do not have to know anything about Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears to enjoy a visit to their home. It is so cosy and welcoming that it is almost as if they are about to walk in. The gardens, too, while not large, are pleasant. Make sure, too, that you visit their graves in the small municipal cemetery next to the churchyard of Aldeburgh's parish church.

A thoroughly enjoyable and insightful visit beautifully presented and maintained in a fitting manner. We did not feel particularly robbed by the Covid-19 restrictions in place because this venue and collection had so much to offer. We were treated to a warm welcome at reception and were made to feel that we could spend as much time here as we needed to. Of course, our 12 month ticket will allow a further visit should we be back in Aldeburgh, and if it were possible we would love to come and see more as and when the restrictions are listed. There is so much to see and absorb. The exhibition is full and highly informative, laid out logically without being overwhelming. Thank you for the care and attention you give to the exhibition and your visitors. I shall definitely be revisiting my music collection when I return home!

An amazing place. We had a tour of the house upstairs from the librarian Dr N C who was both delightful and knowledgeable supported by friendly volunteers. A true immersion in the lives and legacy of Brittan and Pears. And the 2013 archives are worth a visit too.

The house/home is preserved exactly as it was when Britten and Pears lived there. Helpful guides showed us around the upstairs but we were free to wander downstairs. The library and exhibition were amazing. Tea and coffee is available in a help yourself area of reception, but there is no cafe. The toilets were lovely though!
