England is not just home to the ancient Stonehenge and the medieval Tower of London. It’s also not just home to the gothic Westminster Abbey and the prestigious Cambridge University.
It’s also home to the East Anglian county Suffolk (where Harriet’s Tea Shop Bury St Edmunds can be found), as well as to the civil parish village Lavenham.
For starters, Lavenham is a small village with a rich history – deemed to be among England’s 20 wealthiest settlements during the medieval era. It goes way back into the 15th century, as well as best known for 3 wonderful things: its wool trade industry, its century-aged churches, and its gothic-styled houses.
Even more so, there’s no shortage of fun activities in Lavenham – despite its size and its population.
