Attraction details
Owner description: If one picture on a postcard could sum up an idyllic English Seaside destination it would have to be Southwold Pier. Decked out across the sea in the picturesque coastal town of Southwold, this pillared walkway has a magnetic attraction and something for everyone to enjoy! There's so much to do a whole day can drift by while you walk the planks and explore this historic icon. Please note: Our opening times are weather permitting and therefore can change.

Plenty of things to see from shops and a restaurant to a quirky arcade and curvy mirrors, great fun for all ages

Traditional pier with lovely cafe and old fashioned amusements. Well worth a visit. Allows dogs. Great view of the beach huts.

Unless you've visited Southwold Pier, you can't image the fun in store with the craziest of 'amusements', it is difficult to explain the extraordinary absurdities , but you will certainly enjoy every moment you step inside.
Rain or shine, see for yourself this wonderful emporium of British humour.

Shame that the first thing you see is the blasted amusement arcade!

Once past that it’s a pleasant and uncommercial pier with about 4 cafes. One of which we tried - glad we did.others looked ok as well

Pleasant calm place, could have stayed there longer

Go in the amusement arcade on the pier and attempt to cross the road with a zimmer frame on a treadmill as an 80, 90 or 100 year old! Pay a pound to walk a dog on a treadmill! Look at yourself as a tall, short, thin, fat, or just generally different person in different shaped mirrors. Look at the water clock on the pier, made out of scrap metal.
