LOCATION

The famous Southwold and its iconic lighthouse and pier has been a much celebrated stretch of coastline by many for years, the beach with brightly-coloured huts, the village charm, the cannons of Gun Hill, the tower of St Edmund’s Church prominent on the landscape and the local ales have inspired many an artist!

As well as the inspirational landscape that surrounds Southwold, there are a number of historical sights, places of interest and fun things to do for the whole family.

Boasting Blue Flag status for its high standards of cleanliness, good facilities and water quality, the beach is exceptional as is the iconic pier with its Under The Pier Show and Wacky Water Clock. The busy High street offers plenty of boutiques, coffee houses and dining options, as well as the local Adnam’s Brewery, which is well worth a visit.

Southwold is the epitome of a quintessential English seaside town and offers visitors a unique and truly memorable experience in more ways than one.
