Framed by a wide stretch of golden, powder-soft sand, Lowestoft is Britain’s most easterly point and a seaside holiday go-to. The town’s classic promenade features pretty pastel-toned beach huts, gardens, dancing fountains and two piers where you can indulge in simple seaside pleasures: like amusements and vinegar-drenched fish and chips.
You can explore the history of this once bustling fishing port at a selection of museums, or wander a special trail through the Scores, an ancient series of pathways that take in some of Lowestoft’s key landmarks.
You’ll find a choice of first-rate attractions close to the resort’s outskirts. Experience adrenaline-fuelled excitement at Pleasurewood Hills theme park or enjoy the quiet pleasure of riding trams, trolleybuses and miniature trains at the East Anglia Transport Museum. Elsewhere, you can get face-to-face with some of nature’s most impressive species, including lions and giraffe, at Africa Alive!
