Centre of East Bergholt

Although East Bergholt is a large village with a population of over 2000, its centre is compact with a few shops clustered to the West of the Church.

Of these, probably the most important, is the Village Shop and Post Office. It sells a range of goods including post cards and ice creams.

If you do fancy a walk along the valley, look out for the walking guides.

John Constable birthplace

Also in the centre of the village, between the post office and Church, is the site of John Constable's birthplace and East Bergholt home.

Also, just opposite the Village Shop, you can see John Constable's studio.
