Always busy, nice place to watch the ships being loaded and unloaded and going in and out of the port. Good car park overlooking the port near Landguard Fort with a cafe to one side with good views.

The port deLicacies is Britain's largest container port with massive cargo boats being unloaded. Great viewpoint, car parking, picnic tables and a modern cafe to view from.

I visit the port once a month for business purposes and find the security very competent and a safe place to work.

With approximately 3,000 ships each year, including the largest container vessels afloat today visit this port. There is a viewing area close to the port complete with a café and a fort.

The size of the ships in the port of Felixstowe are MASSIVE. I was born in a sea port and have never seen them that size when in dock, yes have sailed past a few but oh my god they were massive.

Seeing the ships up close is great for everyone, especially little boys. The dock area now has a lovely cafe, seating and a tidy little shingle beach area. Good car park too.
