SOUTHWOLD, QUEEN OF THE SUFFOLK COAST
And it is one of these small towns that we feature here, a seaside place popular with inhabitants and visitors alike. And it's called Southwold, regarded as the queen of the Suffolk coast.
Apart from its charm and well-kept, unspoiled appearance, Southwold has plenty more things for locals and visitors to enjoy, including a range of bars, cafes, galleries, and late-opening food stores. It's a mini-metropolis, in fact, that includes among its local businesses, Adnams Brewery, famed locally and across East Anglia for its beers and modish designer stores.
A feature of the Southwold seafront are lines of colourful beach huts, this one with afternoon shadows that form a crenellated line along the sand (below).
At the southern end of Southwold (below) more beach huts reflect the rays of the setting sun. They mark a contrast between these leftovers from a simpler age and the concerns of the modern world - warning signs not to swim near the groynes, and an emergency telephone.
A nice town, and we haven't shown you the fascinating harbour area yet. Come back for more soon.
