About the Venue
The Swan at Lavenham Hotel & Spa is set in the beautiful, medieval village of Lavenham, approx. 15 minutes' drive from Bury St. Edmunds.
The village is full of historic timber-framed buildings and often described as 'the best preserved medieval village in England'. With its fine dining Gallery restaurant, The Swan has 45 en-suite bedrooms, 5 Bubble Rated luxury spa, two restaurants (Gallery and Brasserie 487), three meeting/function rooms, garden, cosy lounges and the famous Airmen's Bar, full of WW2 signatures and memorabilia.
RAF Lavenham was the home of the 487th Bombardment Group, 8th USAAF during WW2 and is popular with visitors, who are tracing 'The Friendly Invasion' of US forces in the East of England, during the Second World War.
Lavenham is often used as a film and TV location, famous for being featured in the 1980s TV series 'Lovejoy' and more recently, as the backdrop for a Harry Potter movie.
Non-residents are most welcome to book treatments in the hotel's luxury spa, Weavers' House Spa, and to visit the Airmen's Bar or dine in one of the restaurants for breakfast, lunch, Afternoon Tea or dinner.
The Swan can cater for any dietary requirements - please advise when booking your table or your room. The hotel offers free parking to residents and WiFi is provided free of charge throughout the property. The hotel is dog friendly, whether you're staying overnight or just popping in for coffee or enjoying a drink in the bar.
Lavenham offers a unique shopping experience, with lots of individual shops, art galleries and antique shops. The National Trust's Guildhall is set within the Market Place, as is the historic Little Hall - both well worth visiting.
Lavenham Tourist Information Centre are most helpful, so please pop in to see them, for advice, walking guides etc. Car parking is free throughout the village and there is free coach parking available at Lavenham Village Hall's car park.
Groups are most welcome and history talks can be arranged, if this is of interest to your group. All-in-all, this is a wonderful location to escape to, from the hustle and bustle of city life.
