The port of Felixstowe has many unique view points, you can watch in awe as some of the largest container vessels dock and unload, or you can look across the estuary to Harwich, or you can wander around the natural peninsula around landguard fort, History, wildlife and modern docks ! Unique and well worth a visit. A small cafe near... More

November is not the ideal time to go, but it was fascinating to see the dredger going by and the many cranes lifting containers. Nice beach, though in November, cold, windy and rainy.

The viewpoint by Felixstowe Docks is a very popular spot where it is free to park all day and just watch the shipping moving into and out of the port.

If you are a sad individual like me, then you cannot fail to be impressed by the sheer scale of the container operation. There is a poetic majesty about giant machines I do love being a sad soul !!!

Was here only yesterday As recommended by a local I got talking to. Can sit in your vehicle facing out to sea, watching the boats and huge container ships up close coming and going to and from the docks. There is a fort and museum just beside this viewing point that is well worth a visit and should entertain you... More

Nice place to just sit and relax and watch the world go by, cafe is ok, not a bad price, the only thing is the speed bumps on the way up there

Great little cafe at Landguard Fort with a good variety of food and drinks to suit all budgets. Located right next to sea with views towards Harwich. Tea from £1 a mug and staff very friendly. Open every day and loads pf parking. Great for walkers appproaching from Felixstowe across nature reserve and away from road traffic.
