Located on the most easterly point of the British Isles, Lowestoft provides an ideal holiday location for all ages, with a mix of vibrant beaches and quality family attractions all set within a traditional seaside town.
Lowestoft Seafront provides a traditional seaside holiday experience with Blue Flag award winning sandy beaches, Victorian seafront gardens, the Royal Plain Fountains, two piers and much more.
Lowestoft has a rich maritime heritage, which is told through a number of the town’s museums and heritage walks.
For those wishing to taste some local delicacies then a trip to a local fishmonger or one of the traditional smokehouses in the town is a must visit.
For an evening why not take a trip to the Marina Theatre, which has a diverse programme of famous performances running throughout the year. The theatre is also the eastern region home to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Away from the theatre visitors have the choice of cinema, family bowling or simply enjoying a meal at one of the many restaurants in the town.
In 2013, Lowestoft will celebrate 100 year centenary of the birth of its favourite son, the composer Benjamin Britten. As part of the celebrations the Royal Plain fountains on the seafront will be programmed to dance to pieces of Benjamin Britten’s music every 30 minutes. There will also be a number of concerts and events in venues throughout the town.
The composer Benjamin Britten was born in Lowestoft and the seafront is said to be the inspiration for his music. In 2013, we are celebrating 100 years since his birth.
