“The Ritzy cinema opened in 1911 and was one of England’s earliest purpose built cinemas, seating over 750 seats in the single auditorium. This beautiful Victorian cinema is a 20 minute walk from the flat.”

Restaurant
$$$
“The Dairy’s menu, stockpiled with smoked eel, bone marrow and charred leaves, is happily seasonal, with an earnest but unpretentious nod to provenance. Here, Robin Gill has crafted the foundations of an institution. The £48 tasting menu is a must: expect dishes like mackerel, gooseberry and lovage; and truffled Baron Bigod, the much-loved Suffolk ‘brie’ that shouts for seeds and sourdough. Afterwards, stay for heady late-night cocktails. Recover with the impressive Sunday brunch.”
