This weekend we visited Southwold, a quaint little seaside town in Suffolk. When I googled Southwold and read about its pier, I had visions of noisy crowds, litter and the constant pings and fanfares of arcade games – don’t get me wrong, I loved that sort of thing when I was younger and so I totally get the draw of it for families, but I’m not so keen on it nowadays. Although Southwold does have a pier and a little arcade, it still manages to hold the charming atmosphere of a traditional coastal town and I felt totally relaxed as i meandered along the promenade.

We started our afternoon with lunch at Suzie’s beach cafe where we had fish finger sandwiches and a latte.

After lunch, we had a little stroll on the beach. The sea was a yukky brown colour, but the lovely sand and cute colourful beach huts absolutely made up for it.

We then made our way into the town – the houses in Southwold are so pretty! I’d love to live somewhere like that someday. I did a spot of shopping along the high street, and then we stopped off for ice cream at the shop ‘Beaches and Cream’. I also bought a little beach hut here, I thought it would look really cute in our bathroom!

We finished our day at the pier where there was a small arcade, some cafés, and gift shops. I had a lovely day at Southwold and we both said we would happily go back there again in the summer. Perfect Sunday.
