Welcome to Clare, Suffolk’s smallest town!

Clare is a thriving 2,000 strong community, set in the beautiful countryside of West Suffolk’s Upper Stour Valley, and brimming with history and nature just waiting to be explored.

One of the five members of Suffolk’s Wool Towns Association, there is something of interest here for everyone, including:

  • wonderful architecture, with over 130 listed buildings
  • a host of independent shops, cafes and pubs
  • a magnificent “Wool Church”, and a Museum housed in a Grade 1 listed building
  • the River Stour, made famous by John Constable
  • a 36-acre Country Park with a Norman Castle and Victorian Railway Buildings
  • Clare Priory, the mother house of the Augustinian Friars in England
  • A 9-hole golf course, fishing ponds and a weekly Park Run

and much, much, more, all in an area where everything is within walking distance.

What are you waiting for? Come and see for yourself!
