Framlingham, commonly referred to as "Fram" by the locals, is a market town and civil parish in the Suffolk Coastal District of Suffolk, England. It is of Anglo-Saxon origin and is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It has a population of 3,114.[1] Nearby villages include Earl Soham, Kettleburgh, Parham, Saxtead, and Sweffling.

Framlingham has a conservation area. The town is home to the summer arts festival Arts Framlingham, Framlingham Castle, the comprehensive secondary school Thomas Mills High School, the independent school Framlingham College, St Michael the Archangel church and Framlingham Town football club. It is also home to the two oldest working post office pillar boxes in the UK which date from 1856 and can be seen at Double Street and College Road.[citation needed]

Thomas Danforth left Framlingham to become a colonist in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in the 17th century, and property granted him became the town of Framingham, Massachusetts. Another famous son of Framlingham is the architectural theorist, archaeologist and artist Nicholas Revett.

In 2006, 'Country Life' magazine voted Framlingham the number one place to live in the country.
