Lowestoft, situated at the most easterly point in the British Isles, was developed in the mid 1800's into a fashionable Victorian seaside resort by Sir Morton Peto, the entrepreneur and civil engineer who built Nelson's Column and the Houses of Parliament. Wellington Esplanade was a centrepiece of Peto's development of Lowestoft. The town has two piers located on the south beach. The southerly pier, called Claremont Pier, originally served as a port of call for steamers traveling to and from London. It now provides a music venue, amusement arcade, roller-disco, fish and chip caf? and a separate, contemporary fresh fish and seafood restaurant and bar. There are many places of interest in the area including Pleasurewood Hills theme park to the north of the town, the East Anglia Transport Museum, Africa Alive, Oulton Broad, Belle Vue Park and Nicholas Everett Park with its pet corner. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has a residency at the Marina Theatre in town. There are three blue flag beaches, several good pubs and restaurants, ten-pin bowling, indoor swimming-pool and sports complex, riding school, cinema, theatre and an annual festival. The Norfolk broads and the pretty towns of Beccles and Southwold are less than 30 minutes away by car, as is the excitement of Great Yarmouth's pleasure beach and unique hippodrome theatre.

LocationLowestoft

Lowestoft is the most Easterly town of Suffolk, with two large sandy beaches and easy access to The Broads. This is a picturesque location ideal for a seaside holiday with the option of boating and fishing just on the doorstep. There are donkey rides along the beach and the Princess Royal Fountains are a fun feature of the harbour and an impressive sight at night time. The Marina Theatre has a variety of comedy shows, cinema and live music.

Normanston Park has football pitches, cricket and tennis courts. Kensington Gardens overlooks the beach and has tea rooms and a model boating pond. Somerleyton Hall is a beautiful preserved stately home, with formal gardens open to the public and plenty of lovely walks to choose from within the estate. There are lots of rides and entertainment shows to choose from at Pleasurewood Hills, including the Mini Pirate Ship and Safari for the younger ones, to the more daring Log Ride and Wipeout Rollercoaster for those brave enough.

Africa Alive is a vast wildlife discovery centre, with over 80 species of African themed animals and reptiles. There is mini golf and indoor/outdoor play areas for children, plus daily feeding talks and safari tours. Within the town is the Claremont Pier entertainment centre, offering a roller skating rink, arcades and restaurant. The East Anglia Transport Museum has a working tramline through woodland and exhibition halls packed with historical steam and commercial vehicles.

Suffolk

The somewhat curious county of Suffolk forms a part of the region known as East Anglia. Its eastern edge is bounded by the North Sea, with neighbouring Norfolk to the north and Essex to the south. The county of Cambridgeshire lies to the west. It has no cities and no motorways, but it does have many gardens and ruins and history in spades, from the Magna Carta to the Saxon relics of Sutton Hoo.

Unusual (for Britain) timber-framed buildings, dating back to the 16th century, vie with Tudor mansions in the attractive streets of market towns. In common with Norfolk, it is a fairly flat county, with much of its area devoted to farming and other rural pursuits. Its coastal geology of sand and clay, combined with the longshore drift current of the sea, means that the land is eroding constantly. Sea defences protect many of the towns but, equally, a good deal of property has been lost as the cliffs are worn away, and more is threatened.

Suffolk is famous throughout the UK for its distinctive dialect, horse racing (the town of Newmarket is the epicentre of British racing) and the arts. Festivals and other shows are common, and fish and chips and Adnam's ale are the order of the day.

East of England

This region includes the ceremonial counties of Norfolk and Suffolk, Hertfordshire, Essex, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire. With a rich heritage there is much to see and do to suit all ages. The royal residency of Sandringham Estate is a must see and other historical points of interest include Castle Rising, Sutton Hoo and Somerleyton Hall. The medieval cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Ipswich are not to be missed and there are lots of pretty market towns and idyllic seaside resorts to choose from for a day trip. Alternatively for a slower paced holiday you may wish to visit The Broads or Thetford Forest, these areas are particularly popular for boating and spotting birdlife.
