What To See and Do

Visiting Hadleigh?

Visitors admire the many historic buildings but the stories of who lived and worked in them complete the picture.

You can discover all about Hadleigh on a Guided walk led by one of the Town Guides. A Viking King, a long distance aviator and an artist and plantsman are all part of our story.

Close to the town, with its wide range of independent businesses, are many country walks, such as the Riverside and Railway walk.

Visitors are invited to join the locals in the many varied activities on offer with our plethora of clubs and societies.

Interesting to see and memorable to experience – making Hadleigh the perfect choice.

Stour Surrounding – Artists and the Valley

‘Stour Surrounding – Artists and the Valley’ is a documentary film that takes a look at artists both past and present who have responded to the landscape of the Stour Valley. In the film we hear how this special landscape – of Constable, Gainsborough and Munnings – continues to shape and speak to the work of contemporary artists today. Moving between studio interviews and beautiful footage across the valley we hear from painter and sculptor Maggi Hambling who speaks of ‘absorbing’ the landscape, and from Simon Carter, May Cornet and several others who talk expressively about how they respond to the Stour Valley and landscape in their own individual ways.
