Lowestoft Travel Guide: 24 reviews and 78 photos


Lowestoft is located on the East Anglian coast, in the north of Suffolk. It is sandwiched between (and overshadowed by) the Norfolk resort of Great Yarmouth, and the iconic Suffolk town of Southwold.
Originally, a small fishing village, it's maritime history can still be witnessed today in the Merchants houses and 'Scores' (original pathways leading to the old fishing village) of the old High Street, as well as the Naval Memorial, East Suffolk Maritime museum and Royal Naval Patrol Service Museum in and around Belle Vue Park and Sparrows Nest Gardens, in the north of the town.

Lowestofts real claim to fame is that it is Englands most Easterly Town. All around the town you will find businesses and clubs etc boasting that they are the most easterly.....Post Office, Medical Practice, Bowling Club etc!
Ness Point is the Official 'Most Easterly Point', which is where you find another 'record breaking contender' - Guiliver - 'The Largest onshore wind turbine' - Rising to 126 metres above the town, it can be spotted from various locations around Lowestoft.
