Felixstowe, Suffolk

Felixstowe in the heart of Suffolk is a charming seaside town offering traditional charm with colourful old-fashioned beach huts scattered around the 4 miles of sand and shingle, a traditional British pier, a boating lake and a wide-range of shops, cafes, bistros, and cosy real-ale pubs.

Enjoy a swim in the sea or the seafront pool complex where the beaches proudly offer a Blue Flag standard, ensuring cleanliness and safety. The Seafront in Felixstowe benefits from the beautiful Spa and Cliff Gardens which have many awards including Britain in Bloom since it was designed and constructed in 1923.

Felixstowe's 2 mile Promenade stretches virtually the whole length of the beach - from Languard Point to Felixstowe Ferry, ideal for an afternoon's stroll with an ice cream before buying fish and chips and sticks of rock from kiosks by the pier.

Just to the north of Felixstowe you will find the award-winning Felixstowe Ferry Golf Course, overlooking the sea and recently voted one of the top 200 golf courses in the UK.

Felixstowe Ferry, a tiny fishing village is loved by walkers who walk from the Clifflands in Old Felixstowe to walk the mile and a quarter to the village along the sea walls.

Landguard's 58 acre Nature Reserve is one of the most important coastal sites in Britain and includes rare fauna and flora such as sea pea and kales, yellow-horned poppy, and the endangered stinking goosefoot, which grows in only three places in England.
