Rough Guides reviews Southwold

Complete with a stay at The Swan, a “pebble’s throw from the sea”

Southwold named as one of Britain’s Best Seaside Towns

Rough Guides lists Southwold as the second best British seaside town, admiring all of its charm, from the working lighthouse to a stay at The Swan.

“Perched on the east coast of England, the small town of Southwold offers typical seaside merriment with its sandy beach, traditional pier and candy-coloured beach huts. A working lighthouse (open to visitors) stands sentinel, surveying the bay, while the Adnams Brewery, which still operates on the same site after 670 years, wafts early morning hops into the sea air. Plenty of excellent eating and accommodation options range from the smart Swan Hotel, situated on the picturesque market square, to a nearby campsite – all a pebble’s throw from the sea.”
