About Southwold

The Suffolk coastal town of Southwold sits on the River Blyth and is in the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As well as the river, the North Sea and Buss Creek mean that the town is also almost entirely surrounded by water and that there is only one road which enters it.

When you first arrive you will probably be keen to see the seaside and the popular and attractive Southwold Pier. The lighthouse is another object which attracts a lot of attention. The big cannons located on Gun Hill are unmissable, as is the view from the harbour and from the Bailey Bridge area.

It is famous as being a charming and picturesque seaside town which offer plenty of things to do and a high standard of living. Many famous Londoners have recently bought second homes here, and George Orwell spent a number of years living in Southwold. It has also been used extensively in the filming of television programmes.

If you like to travel by train then both Halesworth and Darsham stations lie about ten miles away from town. Car drivers will find it on the A1095 and most people get onto that road via the A12.
