  1. When I moved to Felixstowe from London in 1957 no one in London had ever heard of Felixstowe, how times change. Still like Felixstowe look forward to visiting again soon.

    1. Yeap I can only agree with what’s been written with regard to how horrible a place Felixstowe in Suffolk is. We had to put up with for three and a half years whilst living in the rundown part of this place, ‘Old Felixstowe’! Wentworth Drive was the street we lived in and it was here that both of our children learnt to ride their bikes and later riding together to the beach front and along the promenade. Who would want to do that in such an awful setting?
      And now to the facts!
      Felixstowe is a wonderful seaside town set right there on the beautiful Suffolk coastline and which has the U.K.’s largest container port. It truely is a great place to live especially with children as it has a lot of to offer for them. On the other hand it is also a great place to retire and to enjoy the closeness to the seaside and the beautiful views. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and have the fondest of memories of our time at Old Felixstowe. Whoever visits Felixstowe should make sure that they take a bicycle with them so to beable to ride along the seafront and especially down through the golf course and to the small but wonderful marina. The view that opens up once leaving the town and heading towards the mariner is just absolutely beautiful.
      Vicky and Timmy always enjoyed cycling down to the Leisure Center and to the Pier, and whilst riding back home we would always stop off at one of the local pubs where they would enjoy some chips and daddy would enjoy a well deserved nicely chilld pint! Mummy would be at home and preparing lunch😊
      At the weekends we would go down to the viewpoint at Landgardpoint and the port, there would be a chippy and coffee shop, wow! We would all get a snack and then watch the ships coming in to deliver their cargo. It was brilliant!
      So, a big THANKS to Felixstowe and it’s friendly people for making us feel very welcome throughout our stay.
      Cheers and greetings to anyone that might have recognised who’s posted this message.
      Anna, Vicky, Timmy and Gordon
