Crabbing in Walberswick
A short distance and ferry ride from Southwold sits Walberswick, a very popular crabbing destination that sees children swamp the harbour and jetties with their buckets and lines throughout summer.

The ferry, which transports people across the Blyth in the summer months, is rowed by the fifth generation of the same family. There is also a foot and cycle path where the old railway ran across the Bailey bridge - but the only way by car to Southwold is back up to the A12 and through Blythburgh, making a trip of some seven miles.

Adding a bit of fun to your visit will allow you to take in the beauty of the quaint seaside town and surrounding area, whilst also keeping the kids happy! Make sure you bring with you a line, same bacon (or other bait) and a bucket for your crabbing adventures.
