Add to this the newly renovated pier, the blue-flag sandy beach and its brightly coloured beach huts, all overlooked by the iconic Southwold lighthouse, and you are in for a treat whatever time of the year you choose to visit.
One of the most desirable holiday destinations in the country, Southwold has become a popular destination for the famous.

Take a stroll out to the end of the pier and look back at the picture-perfect seafront and you will understand why. A popular haunt for artists and writers such as George Orwell, it is well known for its autumn literary festival and summer theatre.
