Owner description: If one picture on a postcard could sum up an idyllic English Seaside destination it would have to be Southwold Pier. Decked out across the sea in the picturesque coastal town of Southwold, this pillared walkway has a magnetic attraction and something for everyone to enjoy! There's so much to do a whole day can drift by while you walk the planks and explore this historic icon. Please note: Our opening times are weather permitting and therefore can change.

“Fun for everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We tried The Under the Pier Show - so much fun, especially for big kids! :D

Do be sure to get your passport photos taken.

Lovely shop at the end of the pier that shook and rattled with every wave that crashed underneath! It is January after all!!

Fab, warming and decadent hot choc in the Boardwalk. And then a delicious fish platter.

The Pier has everything that every generation of a family needs!!

“Pierless”

Great pier - renovated and with some nice kitsch features. Worth finding the time along with a trip to the Adnams Brewery.
