The Sailors’ Reading Room

Southwold - All Year Round

The Sailors’ Reading Room

The Southwold Sailors’ Reading Room in Southwold was built in 1864 as a refuge for fishermen and mariners when not busy at sea, in an attempt to keep them out of the pubs and encourage them in Christian ideals. Displays of a seafaring nature line the walls and fill glass cabinets. Pictures and portraits of local fishermen and seascapes, model ships and maritime paraphernalia offer a fascinating history of Southwold’s connections with the sea.
