Whatever the weather a stroll along the seafronts of The Suffolk Coast is always a joy.
And now, with winter heading our way, it’s time to wrap up warm and take a stroll along the Prom.
All the way along The Suffolk Coast you are spoilt for choice for great seaside walks. From the traditional seafronts at Lowestoft and Felixstowe to the historic splendour of Southwold and Aldeburgh and plenty in between.
The prom at Lowestoft has recently undergone a major refurbishment after storm damage a few years back. Park near the East Point Pavilion and explore the South Pier with its RNLI Lifeboat station before heading south towards the Claremont Pier.
You’ll see the extensive work that’s helped transform the seafront including fabulous stretches of wonderful sandy beach.
Stop off at the Claremont Pier for a drink and a bite to eat before continuing southwards. You can either chose to take the path at beach level or stay on the Prom as it climbs gently towards Kensington Gardens.
In Felixstowe take a stroll along the seafront taking in the fine Edwardian architecture and the newly regenerated Seafront Gardens – not forgetting the colourful beach huts and miles of beautiful sand and shingle beaches. And why not take the bucket and spade – there’s always time to build sandcastles!
A trip to Southwold, whatever the time of year, is always a joy. You’ll find plenty of parking close to Southwold Pier, making this an ideal starting point for your seafront stroll.
Why not fortify yourself with a coffee and a bite to eat before starting your walk? Try the Southwold Boating Lake Tea Rooms or head on to Southwold Pier and The Clockhouse or The Beach Café.
Aldeburgh really is the place for a traditional seaside escape. The pastel-coloured 19th Century holiday villas line the promenade and the pebble beach with fisherman’s huts is just yards away. Don’t miss the chance to buy fish that’s as fresh as it gets!
So wrap up warm and take a stroll along the prom and drink in that bracing sea air that makes a trip to The Suffolk Coast so special...
