''Snape Maltings is a place of energy and inspiration – a visitor destination of outstanding natural beauty .Visit this remarkable collection of redeveloped Victorian industrial buildings, distinctive independent shops, cafes, galleries, walks and abundant wildlife, all set against a breathtaking expanse of reeds, water and sky''.
We shall be staying here for around an hour and a half before moving on to Southwold where we will leave coach at the pier.
Most of us know Southwold well , but for those who do not - besides pleasures of pier and beach and interesting shops, there is the Alfred Corry Lifeboat Museum and the Lighthouse .
For the very best in fish and chips, head to Harbour Inn on Blackshore , my favourite bit of Southwold. It is very atmospheric by the old fishermens' huts and sometimes you see nets being repaired.It is about 1/2 mile walk from Southwold main drag but worth the walk. From there if energetic, you can walk to Walberdwick or take the.ferry across
(For a small charge a traditional rowing boat - based on the Suffolk punt design - can ferry adults, children, dogs, bicycles, buggies and pushchairs across the river Blyth to and from the Walberswick and Southwold banks. The ferry operates on various dates within the popular high summer holiday weeks, as well as during the school holidays of Easter and half-terms, carrying up to 12 passengers at a time. This way of crossing the river is an alternative to walking inland to the Bailey Bridge footbridge - )
