Southwold, Suffolk

Southwold is a small seaside town on the Suffolk Heritage Coast with easy access to the larger towns of Lowestoft and Ipswich. Southwold retains much of its character with a working harbour, lighthouse, beach huts, pier and of course the beaches.

In Southwold's town centre, you have a great selection of places to eat and interesting independent shops, selling crafts, antiques and gifts, as well as a variety of art galleries and boutiques.
