All the fun of the seaside at Felixstowe

Felixstowe is a Suffolk seaside town that’s also home to a busy port. With two sand and shingle beaches and a newly revamped pier, this is a great place to come to enjoy traditional seaside fun. Have a round of adventure golf, amuse yourself at the pier, and take the bucket and spade to the beach. Both the Seafront Gardens and Martello Park are great for a stroll. Felixstowe also has an interesting military history and you can head to Landguard Fort to find out more, along with Felixstowe Museum which is great value, but shut in winter.
