Southwold Beach Guide

Southwold is a small town in Suffolk on the English North Sea Coast. Southwold attracts visitors with its wonderful sandy beach, a thriving market town and its very own pier. 

At Southwold Pier you can enjoy a variety of delicious food, a variety of shops, its very own water clock and lots of seaside fun! 

You can see a wide variety of creatures great and small at the picturesque Southwold Boating Lake, with the whole area forming part of a rich mosaic of habitats attracting the wildlife. There is a Tearoom for you to stop for a refreshment. 

In 1659 a fire broke out and devastated most of the town including St Edmund´s Church, it created a lot of open spaces in the town which were never rebuilt, so there are still to this day numerous delightful village greens dotted around the town. Southwold was even mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086 for being a prosperous fishing port. 

Famed for the local Adnams Beer, you can take a tour around the Brewery and make your own beer and get a taste of its delight. 

Southwold is also famous for being the home to some of the most well-known literary figures. 

Southwold has a wonderful beach in the town, with a pier and a lighthouse and then some surrounding popular beaches nearby which are great to explore. 

There are also a variety of different Beach huts available around Southwold stretched out along the shoreline! 


Dog friendly beaches, pubs and even the pier! Good Parking spaces for a popular area. 


It only has one beach to visit however, if you´re travelling by car there are other great beaches very close by!
