The Red House, Aldeburgh

The Red House, Aldeburgh

Benjamin Britten (1913-76) was one of the leading composers of the twentieth century. The Red House is the home Britten shared with his partner, the tenor Peter Pears for the last two decades of his life and where he wrote many of his most famous works. The site also includes Britten’s evocative Library, the Studio where he composed, an award-winning Archive building housing the Britten-Pears Foundation's extensive collections, and peaceful gardens. Open all year round, and with an extensive programme of events, there’s every opportunity to come and discover the man and his music in this inspirational and beautiful place.
