You can stay close to the town centre and stroll among the eight Grade II listed Seafront Gardens awarded the Green Flag and Green Heritage accreditation three years running.
These beautiful landscaped and sumptuously planted gardens were created more than a hundred years ago as an attraction for visitors.
The natural springs along the cliffs, together with the closeness to the beach, encouraged this site to be developed as a pleasure ground around a pump room for people to take the spa waters. Today the interconnecting gardens stretch for almost a kilometre along the promenade, with a significant proportion of original planting still flourishing.
If you are inspired to stretch your legs even more head to the attractive natural environment of the Landguard Penisula, to the south of the town.
Explore the rich military and maritime heritage of Landguard Fort, one of England’s best-preserved coastal defences, with a history spanning almost 450 years. At the fascinating Felixstowe Museum next door, discover the interesting artefacts and collections which bring to life the military and social history of this seaside town.
The View Point Cafe is the ideal place to relax and enjoy the spectacular views over Harwich Harbour and the Port of Felixstowe – Britain’s busiest container port.
