A coastal hotspot has been named as one of the best destinations for an entertainment-holiday.

OLGB created a holiday entertainment index to rank the best destinations based on the number of activities, the cost and the weather. 

Southwold came in joint fifth alongside Swanage in Dorset with an entertainment score of 6.31 out of 10.

The index also listed the best destinations for specific features with Southwold coming out on top for the place with the most pubs, restaurants and museums with particular mention given to Sole Bay Inn, the Lord Nelson and Harbour Inn. 

The OLGB said: "If you appreciate a pint at a local pub during your seaside holiday, Southwold has the highest ratio with 11.6 per 1,000 people. 

"The town's tiny population means that it has an exceptionally high density of pubs for its size.

"Many restaurants feature fresh, locally sourced fish and shellfish, providing diners with an authentic taste of the sea."
