A delightful resort which is postcard perfect with a large beach lined with colourful beach huts and numerous cafes, delis and traditional pubs to choose from. The town is home to the famous Adnams Brewery which has a tasting bar and cafe. The pier is a fantastic hub of entertainment for all the family, with a selection of seasonal events, arcade games and cafes. Shows include the quirky Under the Pier Show and the Mirror Walk. Another landmark of the town is the lighthouse, just set back from the beach front and with a guided tour available. Minsmere Reserve is a great opportunity to take in the coastal scenery and the wildlife across the lagoons.
The local Maize Maze is worth a visit, there are 8 acres to lose yourself in and an outdoor play area with go karting on site too. The Alfred Corry museum pays tribute to the life boating pf the local area, with a display of maritime and fishing archives. Walk above the town up to Gun Hill, and see the cannons which used to protect against raids. The boating lake has crazy golf, and a cosy tea room which is great for a cream tea while watching the paddle boats and wildlife.
Take a step back in time with The Electric Picture Palace, a snug cinema which showcases a mix of new releases and classic films. Another idea for an evening out is the Summer Theatre in the Jubilee Hall, offering a variety of comedy and drama shows.
