The four foot ferries of The Suffolk Coast are a unique and popular attraction! Transporting walkers, cyclists and explorers around the coastline, a trip on board is a fun experience for children and adults alike.
Departing from Walberswick jetty, the Walberswick Ferry takes passengers across the River Blyth from Southwold Harbour to the pretty seaside village. People, bicycles and dogs are all welcome aboard the rowing boat, and the pleasure of making such a trip costs just 90p per person!
Rowing between Butley and Orford, the Butley Ferry is an optional, but enjoyable link on the Suffolk Coast Path and Regional Cycle Route 41, it's said to be the smallest ferry in Europe, so anything bigger than a bike won't be able to board!
Further south you will find Bawdsey Ferry and unlike Walberswick and Butley, it's a powered vessel, so you may find yourself sat next to a fisherman, making their way out to a boat!
At the southernmost point of the county, you can hop on board Harwich Harbour Ferry. Travelling between the towns of Harwich, Felixstowe and Shotley. The largest of the ferries in Suffolk, it can carry up to 58 people. During a trip on board, you may find yourself sailing alongside some of the monster cargo ships coming into the port at Felixstowe - a sight to be seen indeed!
