Getting There

An easy flat circular walk from the Suffolk coastal town of Aldeburgh along a disused railway line to Thorpeness, returning back to Aldeburgh along the beach. There are no stiles or gates along the route and no livestock. It's mandatory to keep dogs on a lead on the outward stretch along the disused rail line, no bad thing as there are several muddy streams running alongside, they will however be rewarded on the return journey with off-lead fun and ample opportunities to swim in the sea. Caution will be needed when walking alongside the Thorpeness golf course.

The easiest way to get to Aldeburgh is by car, there are local bus services but they don't run very frequently. From the A12 join the A1094 which leads directly to Aldeburgh, once there turn left onto Thorpe Road, the car park is on the right-hand side of the road adjacent to the beach. Nearest post code IP16 4NR. The pay and display car park charges £2.30 for four hours or £3.50 for the day (correct Spring 2019), there is an option to pay by phone if you don't have change.
