The beautiful town of Aldeburgh has been listed as having the postcode with the oldest average age for its residents in the UK.
Though it’s often known for its pleasant charm and gentle seaside vistas, Aldeburgh can now say that it’s got the oldest residents in any UK town. The average age of each Aldeburgh resident is just over 55. Compare this with the fashionable B4 district of Birmingham, where the average age is just 23, and you can see just how elderly Aldeburgh seems in context!
Aldeburgh often hosts popular competitions geared towards elderly participants, like a golf tournament pitting over 80s against doctors. What is certain about Aldeburgh, though, is that the town’s beauty never ages, and though its residents might have started to grey, its gorgeous High Street never will.
