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.
