The Suffolk Coast

Felixstowe is 11 miles / 30min drive / 38min train from Ipswich.

Nestled between the rivers Orwell and Deben, Felixstowe is a bustling Edwardian seaside town with traditional seaside attractions and a spectacular pier.

The north of the town is home to the quaint fishing and sailing hamlet of Felixstowe Ferry, a true hidden gem of the Suffolk coast. Wander along the banks of the river Deben, hop on the foot ferry for a trip to Bawdsey, grab fish & chips, go crabbing and see how many of the iconic Napoleonic Martello Towers you can spot.

To the south, there’s Landguard Peninsula, which is home to Landguard Fort, one of England’s best preserved coastal defences. There’s also Felixstowe Museum, the Nature Reserve and Britain’s busiest port; where you can watch the giant container ships arriving and departing.

Other superb parts of the Suffolk Coast include Southwold, Thorpeness, Dunwich, Aldeburgh, Lowestoft and Orford.
