Travel Tips for Southwold

Beer tasting

by datapanik

Southwold is home to the Adnam's brewery which has a long history of beer production in the town. Therefore I would suggest that sampling a pint or two of Adnam's is an essential part of a visit to Southwold! Relaxing with a pint of Adnam’s sitting outside The Lord Nelson pub watching the world go by on a warm, sunny afternoon.

The brewery is located in the centre of the town so you’re never far away from a pint of Adnam’s in Southwold! Also worth trying is the lighter Regatta bitter which is produced just for the summer.

The village name is of Saxon origin - Waldbert's harbour. It lies on the river Blyth and was a haven for the ships entering the river at Dunwich. Trade was carried out in butter, cheese, bacon, grain, salt, timber, coal and fish
A church stood at the border of the marshes, near the present day church of St Andrew [built 1494],which has an older tower. The earlier church was taken down in 1473. After this a new church was built and all the adornments were transferred to it- images etc. This church is now in ruins.
The decay of Walberswick as a town can be blamed on King Henry VIII who robbed the tithes and abolished the supremacy of the Pope. Fire and the loss of duties from the harbour also contributed.
Interesting features in the church include the original south porch, the font, a mediaeval pulpit,a parish chest, and some of the choir stalls which probably date to the 15th century. There are also some grave slabs in the aisles between the pews,

A Weekend in Southwold

by i-bella

Southwold is a village with about 1500 inhabitants, on the coast of Suffolk.

It gives the impression of being in an English film from the 1950s with old style beach huts, old style shops and a cinema that shows old classics.

Many of the people help to create this impression, because many wear very classic clothes and carry old style picnic hampers.

Suffolk Beauties

by diosh



An unusual lighthouse, in that it's positioned in the middle of the town!

"Famous Ales"

Southwold is famous for its wonderful locally brewed beer-Adnams.
The brewery is in the centre of the town, near the lighthouse and one can watch the heavy horses pulling out the drays for delivery to the local pubs.
A great sight--Suffolk Punches-beautiful horses.
