COVID-19

Here at Southwold Pier whilst we have been away, we have been busy preparing for our return and ways in which we can make our guests and teams feel as safe as possible.

We have reviewed all our procedures to ensure the safety of our guests and our teams is at the forefront of everything we do.  We might look a little different, but we are still the same on the inside.

Here are just a few of the measures that we are currently putting in place –

  • Large stocks of safety equipment available for all of our team.
  • Strict cleaning schedules for all areas.
  • Social distancing fully implemented in all areas; we like to wave at everyone for now.
  • Our staff have been trained to prevent the spread of COVID-19 prior to returning to work.
  • Food and drinks served individually and prepared under the strictest regulations.

The team are really looking forward to seeing you return to the Pier soon.

Fishing

There’s plenty of fish in the Southwold sea.

Keen fisher or novice, you’re welcome to spend your day sea angling from the end of the Pier. You can pick up a Day Fishing Permit from The Beach Café for just £6.50 which will allow you to enjoy a full day’s fishing from 9am to 4pm.

Cast your line at Southwold’s most easterly point and see what takes the bait. Regular catches include Whiting in the autumn and Codling in the winter, while Dover Sole and Bass are plucked from the water in the summer months.

It’s a wonderful place to see the sunrise and a great place to enjoy true peace and quiet. And if you need any tips or local knowledge, there’s usually a member of the Southwold Pier Angling Club nearby who will be happy to share their experience.

We also offer an annual fishing permit for the cost of £160 – please email admin@southwoldpier.co.uk for further information and details of how to obtain a permit.
