Beautiful Britain - Southwold, Suffolk

Our second trip out on our recent holiday on the Suffolk coast was to explore another new place we had never been to before.

This time we were off to Southwold and, following our visit to the very lovely Aldeburgh, we had no idea what to expect ... apart from the sea and a pier.

Southwold couldn't have been more different from Aldeburgh but it was most certainly another real treat.

At first glance Southwold is more of a typical English seaside town, with a beautiful sandy beach, a busy pier and some of the prettiest beach huts we've come across.
It was roasting hot and pretty busy, but we were lucky enough to manage to park along the front and made our way back to the pier.

We had a good old wander along the pier and back, where we had some amazing fish and chips in the sunshine.
We then took a walk along the front, nosing in the beach huts, some of which were absolutely gorgeous.
We then wandered back in the opposite direction, back towards the lighthouse.
We finished our visit with a drive out to the quay, where we found lots more of the wooden fish sheds and, apparently, the best fish and chips are to be found.
