The beautiful seaside village 90 minutes from London that’s one of Britain’s poshest places and has one of its best pubs

When you think of the East Anglian coast, big names like Great Yarmouth or Lowestoft might come to mind. But there’s a hidden gem on the Suffolk coastline that you might not know about.

This little village is not just any old place – it’s been named one of the poshest in the whole country!

The average house price in Walberswick is over £832,000, so you’ll need a hefty bank balance to buy a holiday home here. The Telegraph even included it in their list of the 54 poshest villages in Britain last year.

And Wanderlust magazine thinks it’s one of the UK’s best kept secrets.

It’s only a two and a half hour drive from London, making it perfect for a day trip or a weekend getaway if you can find an Airbnb or hotel nearby.

Walberswick is a picture-perfect village that’s so pretty it’s become a hub for artists. For centuries, artists have been painting the houses along the shoreline.

Lots of famous faces have owned homes or holiday homes in this tiny village over the years, including actor David Morrissey, ITV Director Peter Fincham, and filmmaker Richard Curtis.

The beach is a lovely mix of shingle and sand, with an old wooden jetty and grassy sandbanks behind. You might even spot otters and deer living on the banks of the River Blyth, which meets the sea right next to the beach.

If you’re feeling peckish or fancy a drink, The Anchor or the Bell Inn in the village are great options. They both have that classic cosy pub feel. In fact, the former was ranked as one of the UK’s very best pubs by The Telegraph – worth the trip, we’re sure you’ll agree.

For more places to eat and things to do, Southwold is just a short trip up the coast.

So, if you’re thinking about a seaside break this spring, why not go for something a bit posh and visit Walbserswick?
