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, approached through neighbouring Reydon.
The town offers much of interest, but it is the sea and Southwold’s links with it that make this a wonderful destination at any time of the year. With its working lighthouse, beach huts, award-winning pier, busy harbour, cliff top cannon and of course the beach, Southwold is a quintessentially English resort town. Come and sample the Southwold sea air but first take a look at Southwold from a different viewpoint and learn a little about it from the photo captions on our Panorama feature.
Accommodation in Southwold features self-catering cottages and houses, bed and breakfast establishments, guest houses and pub accommodation as well as the camping and caravan site near the harbour. Maybe stay close to the town, abandon the car and relax by just walking the coast and footpaths. For details of local events visit our what's-on calendar. Take a boat trip on Coastal Voyager and see Southwold from the sea. Or 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.
The Blyth Estuary Group was formed following the publication in 2005 of the Environment Agency’s (EA) plans to withdraw maintenance from the estuary flood defences. The Blyth Estuary Group has found serious flaws in the EA’s "backing" science and following the breaching of 160 acres of marshes in November 2007 and their subsequent abandonment by the EA they plan to repair and reinstate the defences themselves. The Group is now seeking funding and support for this work which is of paramount importance to the safety of navigation and infrastructure of Southwold Harbour. You can view the full details – and donate towards their goals – on Their Website.
