Dunwich

An area of outstanding natural beauty

Dunwich is a small town settled between Walberswick and Southwold within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB. It is a perfect location for a birdwatching expedition, as it is situated close to the birdwatching areas of Dunwich Heath and RSPB Minsmere.

Dunwich was the capital of East Anglia 1500 years ago but the harbour and most of the town has since disappeared due to coastal erosion. Its decline began in 1286 when a sea surge hit the East Anglian coast, and it was eventually reduced in size to the village it is today. There is a project underway to reveal the ‘lost’ city with high-tech underwater cameras.

If you’re out for a day on the beach with the family and pets (dogs allowed all year on the beach), there is a very attractive Coastal Path walk running parallel to the coast which runs for about 3 miles from Dunwich to Walberswick.

After all that exercise you’ll need somewhere to recuperate and what better place than The Ship, Dunwich, which also provides accommodation for those too tired to leave.
