By Bus

Help preserve the valley and reduce traffic by taking the Anglian bus 88A between Southwold and Halesworth. The route has over 20 pass/stops including the villages of Blythburgh, Wenhaston, Blyford and Holton. The 88A runs hourly on weekdays (timetable) and connects with the Abellio Greater Anglian Train Service to Ipswich and London at Halesworth (with through ticketing). As no. 88, this also connects to Bungay and Norwich.


As an alternative, an excellent way to explore this part of the Blyth Valley is to take a vintage bus tour following the route & giving the history of the famous narrow gauge railway that once linked Halesworth & Southwold. These summer-only tours are organised by the Southwold Railway Trust and departs from both Southwold & Halesworth most Thursdays and every Bank Holiday.
