Southwold – Beach Hut Special

In this blog I will celebrate to the unique beauty and eccentric natures of the great British beach hut. Southwold situated on the Suffolk coast overlooking the North Sea is rightly famous for its huts, having a style of hut named after it and having a couple of rows adding up to a few hundred brightly coloured little “homes-from-homes”.

The Southwold style of beach huts has a tiny veranda with wooden balustrading along their frontage. some owners now enclose the balustrade with wooden panels too.

  1. Lovely photos – I took some similar ones when I was there last year, though I think yours are better than mine – composition and framing makes a big difference.
