Sitting proudly in the northernmost part of The Suffolk Coast is Lowestoft. Famous for being the most easterly town and the first place to see the sunrise in the UK, it's also the birthplace of composer Benjamin Britten.
With its alluring sandy beach and the beautiful Broads, Lowestoft is a place that connects with and celebrates the sea. The town is a favourite with families, and there's plenty to see and do; with two piers, a wildlife park, an award-winning theme park, museums and a busy theatre.
One of the only locations to still have beach huts for rent and with a long, sandy, award-winning beach; Lowestoft South Beach is ideal for families. The promenade is lined with huts, all of which are just a short walk from toilets, drinking water taps, showers and cafes serving snacks, sandwiches and ice creams and selling buckets and spades, kites and bodyboards should you fancy catching a few waves!
The huts are available to hire for the summer season (April to October), through the winter, and for short hire periods too from East Suffolk Council; choose from the stylish new Eastern Edge Huts or the newly refurbished, pretty pastel-coloured chalet style huts. There's a range of accessible huts too, with a boardwalk, beach buggy and changing places facilities nearby.
