Dunwich (IPA: /ˈdʌnɨtʃ/) is a small town in Suffolk, England, within the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB.

Dunwich was the capital of East Anglia 1,500 years ago and was once a prosperous seaport and centre of the wool trade during the Early Middle Ages, with a natural harbour formed by the mouths of the River Blyth and the River Dunwich, most of which has since been lost to erosion. Its decline began in 1286 when a sea surge hit the East Anglian coast and it was eventually reduced through coastal erosion to the village it is today.

It is assumed that the Roman 'Stone Street' runs from Dunwich to Caistor St Edmund near Norwich.

There is currently a project to reveal the 'lost' city with high-tech underwater cameras.
