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.

This has got to be one of the nicest piers I have been on. Well maintained, lovely gift shops and the most hilarious, quirky hand made amusements which made us laugh out loud. We ate in the fish & chip cafe which was nice. The Italian style eaterie looked and smelt good. All in all well worth a visit.

This must be the nicest pier I have ever visited with decent eateries, a quality gift shop and a rather different amusement arcade half way along that mustn't be missed

Just avoid the more traditional arcade and naff café at the beginning for a great experience

We loved the quirky machines halfway down - 40p to be frisked! An odd photo booth amongst other oddities!

Clean and not too tacky! Great selection of gift shops, restaurants and amusements. The 'Under the Pier Show' is very funny.

Love the 'Under the Pier' gallery and excellent coffee. Almost like being at sea! Always some action, usually some fishing going on and the plaques are fascinating.
