Thoroughly enjoyed our visit today, spent 2 hours wandering round the site and learnt so much. Would definitely recommend a visit if you are in the Felixstowe area.

Really good value for money and the audio tour was really interesting . My children were aged between 9 and 16 and they all found it interesting. I would recommend a visit and it is not too pricey.

Take a coat etc even on a warm sunny day as many areas, though well lit can be chilly as wind can blow through some areas. Good free parking but best to be there in the morning.. Very good 'associated' Cafe round the walking corner....More

There is some space inside the fort, but also as you are right in the nature reserve and on the beach this may be a better option? Enjoy.
