In 1939 a series of mounds at Sutton Hoo near Woodbridge, in the garden of Edith Pretty were excavated by Basil Brown, and revealed the remains of an Anglo-Saxon funerary ship and a huge cache of seventh-century royal treasure. After a treasure trove inquest it was decided that it belonged to Edith Pretty, she gave it to the British Museum. The site is now in the hands of the National Trust and a replica of the ship and various parts of the treasure are in...

Parking on the Esplanade, you park on the entire length of the Esplanade from one end to the other with a few exceptions, and its all free. At the far end next to the golf club the bays aren't marked so longer vehicles can park, all the others are so you may upset wardens although I have never seen any. Gets very busy in summer. Very clean paid for toilets (20p I think from memory) with an attendant halfway along the Esplanade Frinton likes to think its upmarket, so you will find very few if...
Large carpark next to the river, some pubs and eateries but not much in Walberswick its self. Nice spot to just chill or if your feeling energetic walk up the river and cross over into Southwold via the old railway bridge, the Southwold to Halesworth was a narrow gauge line (3') which closed in 1929. https://www.southwoldrailway.co.uk/history/ You can also take the foot ferry across the river where you will be rowed across in a small rowing boat.

The Pier carpark has 6 motorhome slots which allow overnight parking. To pay for these you have to use the Parking machine as the online pay site doesn't have that option. Its up the end of the carpark on the left had side. Suitable for 7.5m no facilities although there are public toilets next to the Pier. Southwold is a nice town for a wander around plenty of smaller shops to browse, among its attractions is the Adnams Brewery shop.

Undercliff road East you have to pay for parking. Often see motorhomes here, again a bit of a camber I sit two wheels on the curb and then its not too bad. Water tap by the side of the kerb and toilets close by. Parking places are not marked so nothing to upset the wardens.

Sea road is all free parking but has a big camber and is very popular so get there early. usual mix of seaside amusements and food outlets.
You can park any size motorhome/RV here you have to pay but its reasonable. Only one way in from the bottom, the top is exit only and has steel plates in the road to stop you. The grassed area which is pretty firm is accessed from the top of the carpark by a gate which is open between 8am-4pm or thereabouts, no overnighting. Portaloo toilets in the corner. Security camera on a high pole in the corner. Walk down the steps to the beach 100' below then you can walk to old Felixstowe which is...

Parking in front of Landguard Fort, and also at the viewing point further on but a bit tight for motorhomes, campervans not so bad. Its a single track road from the main road so you may meet a bus as this is on a bus route, they turn around at the Fort. Nice modern Café with toilets at the Viewing point. When open the Fort is interesting to visit, it was attacked in the The Battle of Landguard Fort towards the end of the...
