Why move to Southwold?

The historic coastal town of Southwold occupies a prominent position on the Suffolk Coast and is about two hours drive from north London. The town lies in the heart of the East Suffolk Heritage Coast, much of which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are copious walks and cycle routes, and for keen bird watchers there is the renowned RSPB sanctuary at Minsmere. For music lovers Aldeburgh which lies about twelve miles to the south is home to the internationally famous music festival with many concerts held at the world famous Snape Maltings complex.

A little bit of history
Southwold was mentioned in the Domesday Book as a fishing port and was granted it's town charter by Henry VII in 1489. The indecisive Battle of Sole Bay was fought off the coast at Southwold between the English and French and the Dutch. It is commemorated by six 18-pounder cannons which remain on the town's Gun Hill to this day. Southwold has many literary and artistic connections too, and has been home to George Orwell and P D James.

Need to know
Southwold is a haven for holiday makers and is very popular during the summer and school holidays. The large beach offers plenty of space to spread out and the pier (which was rebuilt in 2002) has a unique range of retails outlets, a restaurant and coffee shop and a 'one off' Under the Pier Show.

Southwold has a vibrant high street with an eclectic mix of shops which lead up to the historic market place. For everyday needs, the town has two supermarkets and an independent butcher and grocer. The high street also offers a wide range of eateries, art galleries and clothing retailers including both independent and national names.
