There’s a lot to like about Lowestoft

Set on the stunning Suffolk Coast, not far from the border with Norfolk, Lowestoft is one of the region’s best-known seaside towns. Boasting two piers, a Blue Flag beach and a thriving cultural scene, it’s fast becoming a popular destination for holidaymakers and those looking to relocate. If you’re considering a move to the coast Lowestoft, Britain’s most easterly town, may well be the perfect choice. 

The beach

The beach is one of Lowestoft’s biggest draws. The South Beach stretches for miles and miles along the Suffolk Coast, ensuring there’s plenty of room for you to spread out and relax. The North Beach, though smaller, still offers a great choice of amenities and easy access to the town centre. 

In the summer months, you can spend your days soaking up the sun and playing in the calm waters of the East Anglia Coast. Outside of the peak season, the beach is a great place for wild and windy walks or you can head out into the water to enjoy a range of adrenaline pumping activities. 

The great outdoors 

Lowestoft is surrounded by some of East Anglia’s most beautiful countryside. The spectacular Norfolk Broads are just a stone’s throw from the town centre. Oulton Broad is just 10 minutes from Lowestoft by car, while many other beauty spots can be reached in around 20 minutes. If you want to get out and explore, there are also a number of walking and cycling routes in the area. One of the best is the fantastic 12-mile route that takes you along the coast all the way to Southwold.

Living in Lowestoft 

While many other towns along the Suffolk Coast have experienced a property boom in recent years, Lowestoft is yet to see a dramatic rise in values. This means it’s still a very affordable place to buy and rent and makes it a very tempting destination for investors. 

A lot of people have been drawn to Lowestoft by the low property prices. Good transport links mean that it’s easy to reach both Norwich and Ipswich by train. By car, these two major hubs are both within 45 minutes. 

While prices may be low now, planned investment and development in Lowestoft mean that values are likely to rise soon. The town already has a good choice of shops and more businesses are likely to be attracted to the area by the PowerPark development and the new Enterprise Zone. 

As Lowestoft is within easy reach of the oil rigs in the North Sea, it’s a popular choice for offshore workers looking for an affordable place to live. The town’s low house prices and wide choice of properties make it an excellent spot for those looking for an affordable base on the dry land.
