COVID-19

Due to the current and ever changing COVID-19 situation, in order for us the maintain the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers, we have made the decision to close our doors.

The situation has been one we have never experienced and it has been an extremely difficult time for all concerned.  We will continue to update you thorough our social media channels and email alerts in the coming weeks but in the meantime we thank you for your continued support and custom.

Take care of one another in these unprecedented times, we look forward to seeing you again as soon as it is safe for us to reopen.

All the team at Southwold Pier.

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.
