Saxmundham railway station is less than a minutes walks from the high street. Saxmundham boasts a thriving town centre with many shops, restaurants, pubs and a museum. An outdoor market takes place every Wednesday. The Long Shop museum at Leiston as well as the seaside resort towns of Thorpeness and Aldeburgh are all easily reached by connecting bus from the railway station Monday to Saturday.

The station suffered major damage in February 2018 and is being rebuilt as a single storey structure as pictured in the design above.
