The seamans service is verry prompt, you call them and they are coming verry fast. The seamans club is ok has almost everything and the internet is working nicely. The port is verry close to the city center you can walk by the water front to the center in 15 min.

The size of the operations at the Port of Felixstowe is truly awesome.It can be best viewed from the viewing point near Landguard.There is adequate parking there and a good place to get snacks or a substantial meal.A really eye opening experience watching the world largest container ships in action.

The whole walking lane of the beach was littered with trash. The casinos were over run with kids and food was not good.

Possible to watch on going ships containers, huge cranes moving containers, the harbour. Without special permissions it is not possible to get into the port, for safety and security reasons.

It's cool to be able to stand so close to the shipped yet so far away and see them moving these colossal beast just float over the water

The harbour viewpoint is a great point to just sit and watch all the shipping coming into and out of Harwich and Felixstowe. Some of the container ships are simply unbelievable with containers stacked high on their decks. There is a well-run, but very busy café beside the car park. Surprisingly, car parking is still free.
