Discover the coastal charm of Felixstowe Ferry
Felixstowe Ferry, Suffolk
This beautiful village at the mouth of the river Debden is an idyllic place to while away the hours.
Felixstowe Ferry is a tiny cluster of houses, just north of the Edwardian seaside town of Felixstowe, where local fishermen sell their daily catch straight from the quayside and visitors come to wander along the banks of the tidal estuary.
Once a strategic port and trading centre (Edward III assembled his fleet here before sailing to France) the hamlet now offers a slice of serenity away from the hustle and bustle of the UK’s largest container port, a few miles away.
The Ferry café, a quirky, 50s-inspired eaterie has been serving fish and chips and dressed crab to hungry diners since 1946 from its seaside location.
