Felixstowe is an attractive resort - boasting record hours of sunshine each year and the second lowest rainfall in the UK.
Its seafront includes traditional family seaside amusements, children’s rides, pier and Edwardian gardens. It also has a busy leisure centre with swimming pools, indoor bowls, fitness suite, and Treasure Island children’s fun area. The Spa Pavilion theatre offers a wide variety of shows throughout the year, while the town cinema shows all the latest films. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby.
Landguard in the south of the town has an internationally important nature reserve for birdwatching and walking, and is also home to Landguard Fort, Felixstowe Museum, and a viewing area where visitors can watch the world’s biggest container ships arriving and departing.
There is a beautiful 18-hole links golf course, and the town is popular for water sports, including sailing and windsurfing.
There are ferries to Harwich and Bawdsey - offering even more places to explore. It is an ideal location for walking, cycling, and visiting Suffolk’s Heritage Coast and Constable Country, with good road links via the A14/A12, and an hourly rail service connecting to the Ipswich main line.
Not far away are the world famous RSPB bird reserve at Minsmere, plus castles at Orford and Framlingham, and the lovely unspoilt seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold.
