Enjoying Southwold Pier

Walk the planks of this curious seaside attraction that stretches out over the waves on Suffolk’s picturesque coastline. Dangle your legs towards the sea, and bathe in the sunshine. Soak up the sounds of laughter emanating from the famous ‘Under The Pier Show’ as people test their skills against Tim Hunkin’s quirky assortment of bonkers creations. Grab a moment of nostalgia in the amusement arcade and let the temptation of a bag of fudge or a delicious ice cream get the better of you. Pop along to one of the cafés for a cappuccino or a naughty cream tea, or meander around the shops for a souvenir and take in the beautiful coastal views. As evening sets in relax with a glass of wine or two, and enjoy the sound of the waves lapping against the shore as you tuck into a delicious meal and watch the sun go down.

Southwold Pier has two restaurants, two cafés, three shops, a fun amusement arcade and some very weird and wonderful attractions. You can find it on Southwold’s North Parade, IP18 6BN. Visit for more information.
