all depends on where the noise is coming from and how its transmitted
it can be coming through the structure through any gaps or indeed through glass
so far more information needed

SFAIA there are no cheap and easy solutions to "soundproof" a home. Double or triple glazing will help as will insulating the walls/loft

My S-I-L had soundproofing added on the party wall between her house and next door, she lost 8 inches of room space in the process.

I'd try heavy curtains or even an old wool blanket first as a cheap test to see if it cuts down on the noise before forking out for newglazing although double glazing is a good idea for other reasons too.

Thank you, Grendel for the useful tip. Old wool blanket sounds to be the cheap and effective method to block the outside noise. I will definitely try out both the methods heavy curtains and old wool blanket :thank_you:
