“Historical interest”
Review of Martello Towers

Martello Towers
Ranked #14 of 25 things to do in Felixstowe
Attraction details
Reviewed August 20, 2014

It is just a Martello tower, so don't get too excited, but between the golf club and the ferry there are 2. Worth walking past, if you have never seen one, to see the size and type of construction; get a guide book or a local historian to explain the historical significance of them.

Very interesting seeing what the Coastwatch people do there, normally open weekends and afternoons in the summer.

Superb structure but this is a beautifully restored fort now a holiday let...so you cannot see inside without spending some very serious money to stay for a few nights.

Nice to see this still standing but needs a major refurbishment job doing on it to keep it alive I feel. Only saw from the outside and it wasn't much to see.

Great to visit and see from the outside. If not staying you cannot visit the interior.

Owned by the Landmark Trust you can book it for short stays but don't bother, it is dire inside. We know , we tried it last year!
