I would not come here just to see the Port and the container ships loading/unloading, that is good to see but not for long. The real reason to go to this port is the walks in the nearby nature reserve and on the nearby beach....More

With the largest port in the UK plenty to see even from the car on a rainy day. Lots of car parking space with a café and toilets as well.

Felixstowe Dock is the hub of Felixstowe's main working activity and can be see from the 'viewing point' and from over the river Orwell. Obviously many trucks travel the trunk road to the docks, but completely miss the town centre.

The car park and cafe are ideal for just sitting and doing nothing! My son is obsessed with the docks and container ships so loves it. While he gets excited , I watch the sea and daydream! Just the job!
