It's a-shame that this place is only open for a few days during the summer. Felixstowe fotr was origonally built in 1540 to stop the Dutch invasion and has had parts added to it up until the second world war. When the fort is open for show they usually have a flypast of a few jets. However if you are unfortunate enough to visit on a day it is...more

If you are in Felixstowe and feel like going out of an evening, all the night life happens at the bottom of Bent Hill. There are 6 bars and that's where every body goes on a Friday and Saturday night.
Dress Code: There is no dress code anywhere in Felixstowe but I have heard that a few places have started to ask customers to remove their hats.
National Express and Rail tickets to all nation-wide destinations plus Euro Lines coach travel to the continent are available at the Tourist Information Centre on the Seafront.
There are two Felixstowe foot-ferries with one to Bawdsey and the other to Harwich and Shotley.
All shops in Felixstowe are located down the Hamilton Road area. There are all the shops you would expect: Tescos, WH Smiths, banks, clothes shops and lots of charity shops. There are a couple of really good book stores as well. You can get most things you need here.
What to buy: Printed Memorabilia.
I was in Felixstowe during Diana's funeral in September 1997. The whole country shut down for a day (except for the bars). There was a huge spontanteous outpouring of emotion. Despite the misgivings in the tabloids, Diana was hugely popular amongst the commoners.
The picture is a war memorial that was turned into a memorial for Diana.
