EADT Suffolk - - 24 HOURS IN. . . SOUTHWOLD -

Stroll along South­wold’s prom­e­nade to­wards the pic­turesque pier, with a warm sea breeze on your face and the sun on your shoul­ders, and it’s easy to un­der­stand why this lovely coastal des­ti­na­tion has been dubbed ‘the quin­tes­sen­tial English sea­side town’.

In win­ter it’s a wilder, wind whipped place, washed by huge North Sea waves that surge up the sand and shin­gle beaches and swirl around the pier’s gi­ant legs. But it’s no less at­trac­tive for it.

In fact, there’s no bet­ter way to start the new year than with a visit to South­wold to for a brac­ing walk over the com­mon or along the beaches, fol­lowed by some warm­ing re­fresh­ment in one its many tea rooms, pubs and ho­tels.

The town has plenty to fill your day and evening and is the per­fect base for a short break or a longer fam­ily hol­i­day.
