Accessible by a summer foot ferry, or a stroll down the old railway path is the town of Southwold which combines a sandy shingle coastline with a bustling market town with much to see and do.   Clamber to the top of the town’s working lighthouse, operating since 1887, this remarkable landmark is a great place to survey the coastline from its inland location.

For further coastline exploring why not take a drive to Aldeburgh Beach, one of the most popular on the Suffolk coast, with a host of quirky historic buildings from a Martello Tower, a converted windmill and a Norman church lining the coast.  A history of art and culture is connected with Aldeburgh with Caroline Wiseman’s gallery located right on the beach.
