The quintessentially English seaside town of Southwold, with its historic pier, is a 'must' to visit. It has beaches, rivers, a busy harbour, excellent shopping in interesting and individual shops, and a charm that draws its visitors to return year after year.
You won't find amusement arcades and candy floss but Southwold is still a seaside treasure with its famous beach huts, iconic lighthouse, family-friendly beach and quirky cinema, the Electric Picture Palace.
Southwold is the home of Adnams brewery and its famous beers; a horse drawn dray is still used through the streets and there's always a faint sniff of malt in the air. Over 18s can take part in a guided tour of the Adnams' brewery and distillery, including tutored tasting (so you know what you'll want to drink when you arrive back at The Ship!)
You can also enjoy a variety of boat trips from the harbour.
The driving distance between Dunwich and Southold is approximately 8.08 miles and takes about 17 minutes to drive.
