Overview of Southwold

The town of Southwold is located North East of Gatwick airport a distance of 137 miles that would take around 2 hours 30 minutes by taxi via the M25, A12 and A14. It is located on the North Sea coast at the mouth of the River Blyth within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The town is around 11 miles (18 km) south of Lowestoft and 29 miles (47 km) north-east of Ipswich.

Southwold was mentioned in Domesday Book (1086) as a fishing port, and, after the "capricious River Blyth withdrew from Dunwich in 1328, bringing trade to Southwold in the 15th century", it received its town charter from Henry VII in 1489. Over the following centuries, however, a shingle bar built up across the harbour mouth, preventing the town from becoming a major Early Modern port. In 1659 a fire devastated most of the town and damaged St Edmund's Church, whose original structure dated from the 12th century. The fire created a number of open spaces within the town which were never rebuilt. Today this "series of varied and very delightful village greens" and the restriction of expansion because of the surrounding marshes, have preserved its genteel appearance.

Southwold today has been described as Islington-on-Sea due to its wealth and its links with the arts. Many celebrities have been seen in the area. Michael Palin called the town "a lovely place, with an atmosphere of its own. It might be called a quintessential seaside town, but with its spruce streets and Georgian houses I think it is really rather exceptional."

Southwold has its own Pier, built in the 1900's, to accomodate the steamers bring daytrippers to the town. Today it houses many amusements and cafes. One of the main landmarks of Southwold is the Lighthouse located in the centre of town, which is a Grade II listed building, to which guided visits can be arranged. Tours can also be taken around Adnams Brewery, which has been based in the town since 1872 and recently received the Good Pub Guide Brewery of the Year Award 2011.
