We were lucky to arrive while someone was practicing for the organ recital so had a lovely accompaniment to our trip.

A very spacious building which lets in plenty of light , unusually all built in one period to a very high standard . The screen and choir stalls are very special and worthy of close inspection .

This church is beautiful. Well worth a look when you visit Southwold! The Southwold Jack is also in there where you can ring the bell. (He’s on the Adnams Logo)

A wonderfully made church with lots of wooden parts (f.e. The roof) just a stonesthrow away from the beaches. It’s a very cute little church!

During our last trip to Southwold St Edmunds could not be visited owing to some significant renovation activity. With renovation complete there are 'modern' style elements now which provide storage for concert events. An attractive flint church worth a viewing

On a previous visit to the town I was unable to visit the church due to major renovation going on. This is now complete. A stunning piece of architecture with some fine restoration work. The church is presented well with some modern lime-wash touches.

Beautiful peaceful church. Lovely to visit for an hour on a wet afternoon. Been to the Easter service a few times (as that's when we stay here) and it's always lovely.
