Walberswick lies on the south bank of the River Blyth, a short ferry ride across from Southwold. It is tucked away at the end of the B1387, amidst a thousand acres of coast, heath and marshland listed as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
It is a beautiful, unspoilt village situated at the mouth of the River Blyth. There are no amusement arcades or candy floss to be found, but families seeking pleasure in the peace and quiet of the beach, river, marshes and heathland will find it here. Perhaps one of the most iconic views of Walberswick is that of its fishermen's huts and houses on stilts. The village attracts summer visitors and nearly half the houses are holiday homes. There are several shops and galleries; there are tearooms and two pubs.
