Day 1 Arrive & explore

Arrive at your hotel in Southwold (by car or train and taxi) in time for lunch and spend the afternoon exploring the rows of pantiled cottages and broad greens of the town. Alternatively, take a circular walk exploring the coast and countryside around Southwold, passing marshes, creeks and a handily placed harbourside pub on your return.

Overnight: Southwold

Mileage: Min 0 Max 7


Day 2 From beach huts to bitterns

Walking down to Southwold Harbour you’ll cross the River Blyth (by small ferry in summer) and head through reedbeds to Dunwich, once the capital of East Anglia, now lost under the waves.

Overnight: Dunwich

Mileage: Min 8 Max 8

Day 3 From ferns to fishing boats

Setting off southwards across the heather clad Dunwich Heath you reach the RSPB reserve at Minsmere and then, hugging the coast you’ll reach Sizewell.  Further south is Thorpeness, a complete holiday village built in 1910 around its own manmade pleasure lake. The House is the Clouds is the quirky landmark here. The last stretch takes you along the beach path past the famous Scallop sculpture to the elegant resort of Aldeburgh where you’ll spend the night.

Overnight: Aldeburgh

Mileage: Min 8 Max 8

Day 4 Creeks & concert halls

Today, you can explore the charm of Aldeburgh and take an optional walk to Snape Maltings, home of the Aldeburgh Festival on the banks of the river Alde. A taxi will return you to Southwold (or Saxmundham Railway Station).
