The railway station at Halesworth is located just a few minutes walk from the town centre. The station houses a museum, and Halesworth Area Community Transport (HACT). Halesworth's main street, the Thoroughfare, is pedestrianised, contains many shops, restaurants, pubs, and a library. An outdoor market is held every Wednesday featuring clothing, plants, cards and wrapping paper, fruit and vegetables and fresh fish.
The Halesworth and District Museum is inside the station. Admission is free, donations are welcome. The museum has fine local history, photograph, archaeology and geology collections, and a working model of the station's moveable platforms. The full-sized platforms (at the northern end of the station and cosmetically restored by the Railway Heritage Trust) are unique in that they are the only ones in their original position.
