One of the country’s top seaside resorts in the Victorian and Edwardian eras, Felixstowe today is a lively coastal town with a strong sense of community. An ongoing programme of regeneration is restoring the town’s enterprising spirit, including a multi-million-pound transformation of the leisure pier to provide a new landmark and attraction for the seafront.
The largest of six towns within Suffolk Coastal District, Felixstowe has a population of around 29,000 people, many of whom are affluent retirees with high disposable incomes. Hospitality and tourism are naturally key industry sectors. However, the town’s economy is dominated by the Port of Felixstowe, which employs 2,700 people directly and a further 10,000 in related local industries.
Felixstowe’s bustling town centre has a good range of successful shops and businesses, including major high street brands and independent outlets. One of the more recent arrivals is an Adnams Cellar and Kitchen store, a major endorsement of the town’s thriving economy. The town centre also benefits from a two-million-pound Shared Space Scheme, designed to improve the experience for businesses, residents and visitors.
Despite its peninsular location, Felixstowe is well connected. It’s just 15 miles from Ipswich and 100 miles from London. The nearby A14 offers easy access to East Anglia’s road system and the wider UK motorway network. Regular services run from Felixstowe Railway Station to Ipswich, with connections to London, Norwich and Cambridge.
