I am a professional Southwold photographer providing a range of services in the town. Southwold is a picturesque seaside resort at the mouth of the River Blyth. It has a lovely sandy beach leading north to Covehithe.
The town, popular with tourists and local visitors is famous for it’s colourful beach huts. They have such a prime position that each hut sells for many tens of thousands of pounds. The walk along the sea front from Gun Hill to the pier passing by the beach huts is a delight.
The town has a lighthouse, a large church, a large common, a pier, a cinema. It is the home of the Adnams Brewery. You just cannot beat a pint of Adnams straight from the cask.
The lighthouse is well worth a visit. You can climb to the top where there are some magnificent views. The town has a wealth of shops and many places to eat and drink including the Sole Bay Inn, a popular public house.
You can often find Morris Dancers dancing in the street. The beach café on the pier sells freshly caught fish with chips at excellent prices.
The clock on the pier is an unusual feature. The view from the end of the pier looking over the town is spectacular. The town is a very popular place and inspiration for artists, writers and photographers. If you are marrying in Southwold, it is also a great backdrop for your wedding photographs.
A footbridge or the Ferry takes you south over the River Blyth with it’s lovely moored boats, to the quieter but charming village of Walberswick. Walberswick has a lovely sandy beach and is flanked by sand dunes.
Covehithe just north of Southwold is a quiet pretty beach with stunning yellow cliffs. Parking at Covehithe is limited and the walk to the beach is approximately one mile but it is worth the effort.
