Southwold is a charming north Suffolk seaside town on the Suffolk Heritage Coast.
Almost an island, being 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, there is just the one road in to and out of Southwold, With its sandy beach and multicoloured beach hut-lined promenade, Southwold offers a wonderful environment for holidays and weekends away, as well as a thriving market town atmosphere.
Southwold has a wide sand-and-shingle beach stretching all up and down the coast, from the harbour to the pier and beyond. If the weather is nice, it’s great to lie out in the sun. If not, it’s still fun to take a walk along the sand.
The lighthouse is Grade II listed and has a spiral staircase with over 100 steps leading to the top. Guided visits make it possible to tour the building and take in the views along the coast.
One of the most exciting things to do in Southwold is explore the world of Adnams.
This brewery and distillery was established in Southwold in 1872, and when you’re here you’re rarely far from a beer, gin, or wine of their making. The Copper House Distillery tour guides people through the start of the process in the brewery and on to the distilling phase. Naturally, it ends with a tasting.
