A lot of people talk about Walberswick as being a well known place for crabbing (it is in fact the home of the Annual Crabbing Championship) – however there are also a few key places in Aldeburgh where you can have fun catching crustaceans as well!
At Aldeburgh the quay is the main place to go for crabbing- it is ideal if you want to take your kids out for the day before enjoying a meal at a local pub such as the Jolly Sailor. The local tackle and bait shop offers specialist crabbing lines and baits, ensuring that you have the gear you need to be a top notch crabber.
The quay is located near Orford Ness Nature Reserve and so is also the ideal location if you want to learn more about local nature. You can get directions here to help you plan out your day out crabbing in Aldeburgh!
