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.

Directions & Map

Reaching far out into the sea at the northern tip of the town, Southwold Pier is easy to find. Wherever you are in Southwold, head east to the beach and turn left to find us!

Southwold Pier is easily accessible from the A12. If you’re travelling north from London, Ipswich or Woodbridge, take the A1095 to Southwold just after Blythburgh.

If you’re heading south from Norwich or Lowestoft, follow the B1127 in from Wrentham.

Once you’re in Southwold, turn left at the mini-roundabout by the Blyth Hotel into the appropriately named Pier Avenue, which will take you to our door.

Using Sat Nav? Then pop in IP18 6BN.

The council provides a large car park to the left of the Pier which is available 24 hours a day and free parking is available from 6pm.

The local service stops just a few metres from the Pier, so you can be off the bus and have a delicious ice-cream in your hand within two minutes. For times and routes please visit
