Southwold is nice, home of Adnams brewery! Pretty sure i've had a meal at The Swan at least once, can't remember it at all though, just remember the name from family talking about it. I always forget about Norfolk and Suffolk's seaside stuff, is quite nice but nothing like it was when I was a kid.M60NJP wrote:It was purely a weekend away by the seaside! I was only there overnight and worked there when the Southern gas fields were managed from there. It was a bit quiet but it is pre-season.......although the hotel was excellent and I had one of the best Chinese meals ever whilst we were there! Southwold is just down the coast and I used to stay at the Swan there when travelling on business, but they've got greedy with the oil (gas!) money and wanted over £100 for a night!! The main roads in/out were in remarkably good condition, presumably due to the light traffic. I enjoyed it, but prefer Aberdeen any day.
Haha I don't like Aberdeen, cold, grey, miserable and wet. Nothing there except the oil industry. Plus it's miles away from everywhere. Virtually every decent car meet/show etc (bar the local Aberdeen club ones obvs) are down near the Central Belt. I'm just a pessimistic git though haha. Dundee just down the road is super cheap but quite nice. Only reason it's so cheap is cos there's no industry there whatsoever. All the jobs are in supermarkets and shops. They used to have loads of factories and the like but all that's left is a Michelin factory and DC Thomson (make Beano & Dandy) printing place/headquarters. Would like to move down that way at some point, Aberdeen's too expensive (in Scottish terms anyways, seen how mentally expensive parts of England can be!).
