Walberswick

Walberswick is an unspoilt village on the Suffolk Heritage Coast, just across the River Blyth from Southwold.  There are two excellent Suffolk pubs serving freshly cooked and locally-sourced food, including seasonal fish and seafood.

The village itself is very small, but has an interesting Gift Shop, and a very good Tea Shop – serving morning coffee, light lunches, afternoon teas, and ice-creams (to take away).

What’s so wonderful about Walberswick is it’s unspoilt beach – where you can walk for miles up the coast.  There are no Tea Huts or Ice-Cream Kiosks, just sand-dunes and sea!

On the edge of the marshes there are two bridges which take you cross the Creek. Children enjoy whiling away the afternoon sitting on the edge of the bridges and catching crabs using lines baited with fish or streaky-bacon.

From Easter until October there is a Ferry service to Southwold, with a skilled oarsman taking you across the River Blyth to Southwold Harbour in a row-boat – for about 50p each!
