Lovely shops

This is a very well kept pier and the shops are all beautifully appointed and worth a visit. It is a lovely walk to the end of the pier and along the front.

Everything for the whole family in one great place. An amazing pub that sells great Britsh food, when the weather is right you can... More

Sun shining in Southwold? Want some lunch? What could be better than fish and chips on the Pier? Highly recommend it and the staff in the Boardwalk restaurant are the best.

This is the best pier ever! It has totally individual and has shops that contain things you would actually like to buy! Southwold is a fantastic place and this pier is second to none!

No seaside town is really complete without a pier. So Southwold is very lucky to have one that is obviously so well cared for. There's a restaurant, coffee shop and some shops, all very nice and pleasant. And on a fine day, there's nothing quite like a stroll up and down the pier at the seaside.

We couldn't spend much time on the pier as it was so windy and cold. But it was in beautiful condition, very clean and well kept. Will certainly be back in warmer conditions when we visit Southwold again.

I loved it. We know it quite well. We went in what felt like a force 9 gale, with large sea swell. So best to do it when it isn't so windy or wet, no real shelter. The shows are amazing, see reviews for under the pier show!

I agree with the above reviews. We know the Pier and Southwold very well, through visiting my wife's sister, who has just moved there. There is something "magical" about the place. I don't know what. Ha! We often walk our dogs on the permitted parts of the beach and then, suitably envigorated, go for a sandwich and coffee. Not very... More

Open all year, except Christmas day, several shops and cafe/restaurants, plus entertainment. Good views of the town and coast, both north and south.
