Just 100 minutes away from Central London, Felixstowe is a charming port town with beautiful gardens and the glorious sea shore. It is situated in the county of Suffolk along the British eastern coast and is well known for its beautiful scenery and views of the sea. It is also a popular place for those who want to catch a ferry to one of the many European ports.
One of the main tourist attractions in the area is the Bethesda Baptist Church, which is an imposing mansion with artistic lawns and a simple altar and prayer service. Many people come to see this particular church and enjoy the tranquillity, but there are plenty of areas to go if you want to see a little more hustle and bustle. Located in the northern part of Felixstowe, the Felixstowe Ferry, at the mouth of the River Deben, is a charming neighbourhood featuring pubs, restaurants and much more. You can either stroll around the quaint area or take a sail along the river.
The long seafront promenade features quiet beaches and marvellous landscaping on the northern part and a residential and commercial holding centre is located in the southern half. This part of the town is a great day out for all the family and offers some traditional sea-side treats. Mannings Amusement Park is one such attraction. This is a theme park with beautiful gardens, thrilling rides and great views of the sea. Golf enthusiasts will find plenty of facilities for them to use and there are other activities available too.
Located in the midst of a national park in the South, the Land Guard Fort has plenty of bird-watching vantage points. You can enjoy a stroll in the wilderness or trek in the forests and will see all kinds of exotic flora and fauna, but if nature is not your thing then there are plenty of indoor attractions to check out. Featuring marvellous exhibits from years gone by, the Felixstowe Museum is a must for its rare artifacts. It is open every day of the year and visitors can avail themselves of guided tours every day.
The Dip refers to the strip housing plenty of beaches between the Felixstowe Ferry area and the Felixstowe promenade. What was once a popular tourist spot, is now a quiet weekend getaway with untouched beaches and sunbathing facilities. The British seaside holiday is making a comeback and Felixstowe is a great place to find out.
Felixstowe also has a number of beautiful buildings and a varied nightlife in town, but if all that partying and sea air is too much then you can revive yourself with a good night’s sleep, and what better way to be sure of that than with a memory foam mattress? Memory foam products from the Hypnia brand are ideal for those who find it hard to get a good night’s sleep for any reason as getting comfortable takes only minutes and every part of the body is fully supported, relieving pressure points and helping to reduce stress levels.
