The countryside around Claydon is set among low-lying hills and lies next to the River Gipping. It is close to the intersection of the A14 and the B1113. Between the A14 and the B1113 (former A45) is the Ipswich to Ely Line.
The village offers two pubs for the traveller and locals, The Crown and The Greyhound. There is also a post office, hairdressers, car dealership and travel agency. It also has a primary school and a high school. The high school on Church Lane is now a specialist Humanities College since September 2004, it also has a sixth form centre alongside with Thurleston. There are regular bus connections to Ipswich, Bramford and Stowmarket from the centre of the village.
At the top of the hill on Lane can be found the Church of St Peter, which has been partially restored. It is one of the few pre-Norman churches in Suffolk. The interior is attractive with a very fine wooden fan vaulted ceiling.
