Felixstowe Seafront Gardens

The newly restored Felixstowe Seafront Gardens sit on cliffs between the town centre and beach.

The eight Grade II listed gardens are of significant historic interest and give the town its title, "The Garden Resort of East Anglia".

These beautiful landscaped and sumptuously planted gardens were created a hundred years ago, as a result of the popularity and fashion in late Victorian times for visiting coastal locations, in pursuit of improved health and relaxation.

The natural springs occurring along the cliffs, together with the proximity to the beach, encouraged this site to be developed as a pleasure ground around a pump room for people to take the spa waters. Today the interconnecting gardens stretch for almost a kilometre along the promenade, with a significant proportion of original planting still surviving and the original path layout little altered.

Take time to wander through the gardens on the 'Heritage Trail' and uncover the many historical features, structures, colourful and unusual planting.

Felixstowe Seafront Gardens was awarded the prestigious Green Flag Award and Green Heritage accreditation in 2016.
