Southwold is another of Suffolk’s unspoilt towns and regularly makes appearances in the Sunday Supplements. Without a railway station it manages to keep some tourists at bay, but in the summer months it becomes very crowded and parking can be difficult.

Southwold is most famous for being the home of Adnams brewery, established in 1660 it is still a family run business and its beers are available in the many pubs around the town, the “Nellie” being my particular favourite.

In 1659 Southwold suffered a huge fire, which destroyed much of the town, however many buildings of interest survived including St Edmunds church. On the green, above the beach are six 18-pounder cannon, commemorating the Battle of Sole Bay which was fought in 1672 between the English and the French.

Southwold lighthouse was built in 1887, and now stands as a town landmark, having been de-manned in 1938. It is open to visitors who are strong enough to climb to the top and affords splendid views across Southwold and beyond.

Southwold’s popularity has made it a location for several films and TV series including ‘Iris’ starring Judi Dench, Kavanagh QC and Little Britain. Famous residents include Bill Nighy and author P D James who both own second homes in the town. The writer George Orwell spent a lot of his childhood in Southwold, and a plaque marks the house where he stayed.

The population of Southwold is 1,458 – much more in summer – living in 790 homes. Its popularity means that the average 4-bed detached property is valued at £700,000. One of the brightly coloured beach huts will set you back only slightly less!
