Walberswick, the nature lovers hidden treasure

Just beyond the River Blyth is the quintessential charm of Walberswick. Quieter than Southwold, it offers simple pleasures of village life, the beach and famous crabbing!

Walberswick was formerly a busy port trading in fish, cheese, corn, bacon and timber but changes to the coastline caused a decline of trading. Walberswick also had three churches dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries, of which the surviving Church of St Andrew is located within old ruins of a much larger church indicating the prosperity of the villages’ istory.

In more recent years the village hosted an annual crabbing competition known as the British Open Crabbing Competition where dozens of competitors would gather their colourful buckets and chosen bait to take part.

Walberswick’s long sandy and shingle beach is prime for family-friendly holidays but is also backed by grassy dunes surrounded by marsh and heathland. The nearby National Nature Reserve follows the River Blyth and is home to otters, deer and a wide range of bird species – ideal for wildlife enthusiasts and ramblers.

Walberswick has a small village shop, two charming pubs, an art gallery, gift shop and tearoom. You can even hop on the foot ferry and arrive in Southwold within minutes during the summer season or cycle across the Bailey Bridge.

You can also head across to the historic village of Dunwich through the Walberswick Nature Reserve to discover more of the history of Suffolk’s ever-changing coastline.
