Southwold is a quintessentially English town, allowing visitors to experience a traditionally British seaside resort as it used to be!
The town is well known for the expanse of sandy beach adorned with a string of colourful beach huts that lead from the iconic Pier to the harbour at the other end. The Pier, built in 1900 as a landing stage, is a great place for a family day out with it’s Beach Café, excellent Boardwalk Restaurant, gift shops, award winning fish and chip shop, the wacky Under the Pier Show, humorous waterclock and magnificent views.
Home to the Adnams Brewery, the town boasts several excellent pubs and restaurants as well as a range of convenience stores, independent shops, splendid art galleries and a lighthouse open to the public.
A pretty walk through the harbour and over a footbridge leads to the picture-postcard village of Walberswick, home to two good pubs (The Anchor and The Bell) and a long sandy beach where Fresh fish can be bought from huts along the harbour.
RSPB Minsmere Nature Reserve is a short drive away, offering several miles of countryside walks, bringing you close to a variety of bird and wildlife with each season bringing it’s own experience.
