What a great way to leave your car in Walberswick and get across to Southwold, the walk into Southwold was pleasant too and lots of explore. The men on the boats took pushchairs and little ones in their stride - safely!

A pound per person each way. Quick service and a pleasant chat to get across the river. Nice hour spent in Walberswick.

For a £.100, you will be rowed one way across the River Blyth by a man in a small ferry boat allowing you to go between Walberswick and Southwold, such a unique experience!

Great little boat to get too and fro in from Walberswick to Blackshore. Pleasant and helpful service and you can take the dog too!
