The East Anglia region

The Suffolk Coast

The nearby Suffolk Coastal area abounds with great wildlife and outdoor experiences, to be explored on foot, by bicycle or by car. There are super views from Dunwich Cliffs (National Trust) to Southwold and also over RSPB's Minsmere Nature Reserve, deer and Dartmoor ponies in Dunwich Forest, several local nature reserves in the care of Suffolk Wildlife Trust, open commonland in Westleton, Wenhaston and Walberswick ....... Come and see for yourself from your comfortable base at Lighthouse View in Southwold.

Southwold

Southwold is situated on Suffolk's Heritage Coast for a traditional beach-centred family holiday, or for those who are child-free just to enjoy the relaxed pace of life in this unique town with its many attractions. Ice-creams and fish-and-chips are never too far away!

Lighthouse View is centrally placed for the seafront with its beach and award-winning pier, all with the backdrop of colourful beach huts. Try a paddle before breakfast! The art of sandcastle-building thrives on Southwold beach, with frequent breaks in construction for a refreshing paddle in the sea.

To explore this thriving and lively town just step out from the front door of Lighthouse View. Nearby there is so much to enjoy. The working Lighthouse opens its doors to visitors from around Easter to Autumn with the admission fee benefitting Southwold's Millennium Trust. You can climb to the very top to take in the impressive view.

Nearby is the Sole Bay Inn, the Adnams Southwold pub which is the one closest to the Adnams Brewery. Learn more about Adnams' award-winning products on one of their Brewery Tours. The town Museum in Victoria Street is packed with items of interest as is the clifftop Sailors Reading Room. Among the independent shops in the High Street the fascinating Amber Museum is contained within The Amber Shop. There are art galleries and tea rooms too. Divert from the Market Place to South Green and Gun Hill, complete with the clifftop line of cannon all facing out to sea.

Stroll on to Southwold Harbour for fresh fish and seafood, or a visit to the Alfred Corry Lifeboat Museum. From the tearoom or The Harbour Inn you can watch many types of boat coming and going.

Our Suffolk skies tempt you to get out and about. For children there is play equipment on Tibby's Green next to St.Edmund's church. Near the Pier find the Putting Green and the Model Yacht Pond where visitors are welcome. The Common is home to football, rugby and golf clubs, but there is plenty of space to play chase, catch a frisbee or fly your kite.

Southwold is a lively and independent town which loves a celebration. Various long-established outdoor Fairs take place on its Greens and Common in the warmer months. In December Southwold heralds the forthcoming festive season with an evening Christmas Lights Switch-On Event on the first weekend of the month. Santa always finds time to come along too.

All year round there are a range of indoor events including theatre, lectures, cinema, exhibitions, concerts and talks held in Southwold's various meeting halls, churches and tiny cinema. You will be most welcome to come along and join in!
