Welcome to Southwold

Southwold is a small rural seaside town on the Suffolk Heritage coast; one of the furthest points to the east on mainland Britain. It has fine, sandy beaches, open greens, an expansive common and a working harbour. The architecture is somewhat traditional at its core, but is strengthened by some unique modern builds that are quite individual and distinctive in design. There is a resident population of a little under one thousand.

Often considered as a quintessential English seaside town, Southwold changed little in the second half of the twentieth century, but while its attractiveness to visitors is undiminished, in numbers at least, there is change and this is being managed in an attempt to retain the essential qualities of a picturesque and much loved location. It is a far from easy task, with the speed and demands of the twenty-first century bringing new pressures in addition to challenges, particularly with regard to traffic management and a changing retail climate.

Two Conservation Areas feature strongly, one based on the Town, itself, and the other on the Harbour. The lighthouse, built in 1890 and standing almost 31 metres, dominates the town and is open for tours, as are the Sailors' Reading Room, three other museums and the brewery.
