Our history

The George and Dragon Hotel enjoys many years of traditions in the heart of Long Melford.


Long Melford is a village with a lot to offer to the visitor, whether you are interested in historic buildings, famous for their walkers, antiques, life-style shopping, good food or the latest fashions.


There are several fine dining with excellent restaurants and a collection of shops that are the envy of East Anglia.


Long Melford has been settled for many centuries. It is a busy village in Tudor times and attracts visitors and holidaymakers from all over the UK and the world.


Houses, shops and other businesses are comfortably mingled along Hall Street (the main street) and Westgate, making a delightful environment for the wandering pedestrian. 


Long Melford can boast that it has the longest street in england with a population of only just over 2,500 people.


And these are just of the thing you can visit when you are here.
