About Eye

Eye is one of our smallest towns. Centuries ago it was an island town to which King John granted a charter in 1205. There was a Norman castle built there, however not much remains as the castle was attacked by Cromwell's troops in 1655. The castle ruins, set on a lofty mound are open all year round.

A walk around the town reveals a wealth of lovely 19th-century buildings and a fine 16th-century guildhall. Chippenhall Hall, now a gracious country hotel, is a heavily beamed listed Tudor building, a house of this site was originally mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Other buildings of note include the Priory of St.Peter, founded as a Benedictine Monastery in 1066 and beautiful Linden House, dating 16th-century. Interestingly, Linden House was one of the setting for Agatha Christie's Miss Marple.

In its tranquil setting on the River Dove, Eye offers a peaceful harmonious place where the visitor can unwind, relax and throw away the cares of modern life. It is surrounded by a patchwork of villages which include Southwold, Walberwick, Alderborough, Orford and Dunwich. It is with easy driving distance of Diss where you will find a beautiful mere, a haven for wildfowl. Also close-by is Billingford Mill and Bomb Group 100th Museum.
