Saxmundham is an up-and-coming town which has benefited from the recent redevelopment of its town centre. Several larger chains have opened stores in Saxmundham, meaning that the high street consists of a mix of national brands and local businesses. There is also a weekly market on a Wednesday.
The town is well connected, both having a railway station with an hourly service to London Liverpool Street and being located adjacent to the A12, the major road which connects Suffolk to London.
Saxmundham is a growing town with several large new housing developments recently completed. With many young families taking advantage of this, the family-friendly character of the town looks set to remain.
Carlton Park, an industrial estate located on the outskirts of the town, provides a base for many thriving businesses to operate from and caters for a wide range of sectors.
