Holidays in Southwold

An attractive fishing town which boasts excellent bathing beaches

Southwold is a charming seaside town on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, which makes for an ideal holiday destination - any time of year.

Practically an island, Southwold is bounded by the North Sea to the East, by the River Blyth and Southwold harbour to the South-West and by Buss Creek to the North. In fact, there is only the one road in to and out of Southwold.

Southwold is a quintessentially English resort town, but it the sea and Southwold's historic relationship with it that make it such a wonderful destination; a working lighthouse, traditional beach huts, an award-winning pier, a busy, working harbour, a cliff-top cannon and - of course - its famous beach.

There's always plenty to do: Abandon the car and relax by just walking the coastal footpaths. Take a boat trip on Coastal Voyager and see Southwold from the sea. Venture across the River Blyth by foot ferry to Walberswick, perhaps crossing back by the footbridge, in so doing exploring the trackbed of the old Southwold Railway.

And there's so much more to see too: Adnams brewery, the tea rooms, replica town stocks on Bartholomew’s Green, romantic moonlight on the sea, flagpoles and floral displays. Why not take a seat on one of the multitude of benches on the sea front and around, so you can take your ease in this very special town of Southwold.

Come and visit at any time of year!
