Things to do in Walberswick, Suffolk

Village Sign on the Green © Peggy Cannell

The little village of Walberswick stands on the bank of the River Blyth at the harbour mouth which can be crossed to the popular, unspoilt town of Southwold, either by walking over the Bailey Bridge or, in season, using the Foot Ferry.

The Harbour and Crabbing

The Walberswick/Southwold harbour is interestingly active where fresh fish is available to purchase.

Walberswick hosts the annual British Crabbing event, which is always well attended with some people travelling long distances to take part. There is a large convenient car park close by.

Diverse, interesting houses stand around the large village green where there is also Art, Craft and Gift shops, plus Tea Rooms where anything from a cup of coffee to a light meal can be enjoyed, either inside or in the gardens depending on the weather.

Two Charming Inns

The 600 year old 'Bell Inn' which is situated near the Village Green, and close to the beach offers accommodation, as does the 'Anchor Inn' which is in the Main Street, both have their own individual unique charm and should not be missed on a visit to the village.

St Andrews Church

St Andrews is now a small Church built within the ruins of a previous much larger Ediface, indicating how large the village must have been in former times.

Nature Reserve

There are many acres of protected Heaths and Marshland around the village which is a great attraction for tourists, also the Minsmere Nature Reserve is close by.

Walberswick is a charming village with much to offer.
