Felixstowe is a seaside town, dating back from the Edwardian period, in Suffolk. The town's name originates from the nearby Port of Felixstowe which is still the largest container port in the United Kingdom. The town prides itself on its great days out for tourists. There are many seafront amusements, scenic walks on the promenade, shopping facilities in the bustling town centre, explorations through the Edwardian gardens, bird watching at the nature reserve and uncovering history at the fort and museum.
During the summer months the town hosts many festivals. In late June, the Felixstowe Book festival takes place over various locations in the area. From writing workshops to children's storytelling to poetry readings, the festival is perfect for anyone interested in local and international literature. There are additional evening events such as vintage tea parties and ceremonies to commemorate First World War veterans.
