Snape was once a thriving port. Barley was malted at the maltings and then shipped to London and across Europe on Thames barges.

The maltings has now been converted into a music venue where the Aldeburgh music festival is held.  There are also several bespoke shops around the site and a cafe and restaurant.

Snape Warren is a reserve owned by the RSPB.  It is an important habitat for birds and these can be spotted while walking through the heathland and woodland.
