"Because Aldeburgh Beach LOOKOUT is isolated, yet at the heart of cultural innovation, it is a magical and stimulating setting for artists to respond each in their own fascinating way" Caroline Wiseman, founder

Isolated on the pebbled beach of this Suffolk seaside town, the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout  welcomes a new artist, poet, performer, musician, thinker, each week as artist in residence.  Each weekly artists residency culminates in an exhibition of brand new work.


London Art Dealer Caroline Wiseman first spotted this iconic tower whilst taking her morning swim in the sea in 2010. Caroline set about acquiring the tower and the house behind on Crag Path and established Aldeburgh Beach Lookout soon after. She has transformed the Lookout into an international art destination.


Since its creation the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout has hosted some of the world's most eminent artists including Peter Black RA, Eileen Cooper RA, Ryan Gander and

Anthony Green RA.

"The Aldeburgh Beach ArtHouse is like a living, breathing Kettle's Yard by the sea"

"I have admired the Lookout from a distance"

"It is a remarkable place, offering a retreat for artists but also very much part of Aldeburgh's cultural significance"
