Overview

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.

There are cafes, a couple of amusement arcades, a restaurant and a couple of shops as well as a very interesting water clock. If you’ve got a permit you can even fish off the end.

We stayed in Southwold for the first time this February and made quite a few trips to the pier. Beautiful scenery, well maintained. Cafe, shops and arcade. Dog also enjoyed the trip.

Perfect spot for lunch on a bright and stormy day! Waves crashing in under the pier and delicious fish finger sandwiches! Loved the crushed peas, the tartare sauce could have been a bit thicker but lush any way! Set us up perfectly for an Adnam’s...More

It's great to walk to along the beach and to walk out to the end and play some games on the way. Especially the old / odd games in the middle of the pier.

First time visiting southwold and we were recommended the quirky pier, not being quite sure what to expect, but we wasn't disappointed. Definitely out of the norm, with a small amusements arcade which kept two adults entertained for an hour or so. Nice shops to...More

Hi Kevin Apologies for the late response. All plaques that are placed on the pier stay up indefinitely so it will certainly still be there. We look forward to seeing you on your trip this Summer. Kind regards Peter
