11 things to do in Southwold, Suffolk. Grumpy Git's Road Trip. Travel blog. Travel blogger. Travel diaries. Travel list. Bucket List. Travel ideas. Things to do. Places to see. Cambridge. Haverhill. London. United Kingdom. Web designer. Website designer.

Are you planning a trip to Southwold, Suffolk? Or perhaps you're just looking for a day out with the family?

In this post, I will list all the places I would like to see during my visit to Southwold.


Please note that the key driver for this road trip is photography. Therefore, many places listed below will consist of many locations that you may not consider to be 'bucket list' items. But if you are a photographer, or plan a long term road trip, then these may well be places you'd like to check out.

Get your personal blog review and added to the directory

Are you the proprietor or owner of any of the venues listed below? Or perhaps I have missed your venue from the list? I haven't listed any/many eateries on this list because those I will seek out personally when visiting towns/villages.

If you would like your venue added as a blog post, this can be arranged in exchange for free entry to your venue, free use of activities if any and sustenance (I don't take the piss!).

In return, I will experience your venue and provide a review of my own in a blog post. This post can include a few paragraphs from yourself if you choose and will contain a backlink to your website plus any contact details you wish to add.

In addition, you can choose any 2 images taken at your venue. Get in touch if you'd like to invite me to your venue. Check with your Marketing Director, it's a great deal 👍

Please get involved in Grumpy Git's Road Trip!

If there is something missing from this list that you feel should be there, please do leave a comment and if it's something that interests me I'll be sure to add it to the list 😊

As I visit the attractions/places below I will update this post with a link to the associated blog post for that location.

Okay, I'll stop now 😊
