I’m back from my English seaside holiday. Felixstowe was an unusual place to go for a holiday but it was nice – plenty for the kids to do, a nice town centre, very clean and well maintained and surprisingly quiet.
The caravan site we stayed on was a bit of a disappointment. The caravan hadn’t been cleaned very well when we arrived and the children’s entertainment was rubbish. There was no mention in the brochure of the trains that passed by all of 100ft away every half an hour some nights. That said, it was close to the sea front with a McDonalds within walking distance, its own pool and park and only 5 minutes drive from the town centre and its truly awful one way system and traffic lights. More on the caravan site another time, including the toilet geyser keeping us awake last night.
The sea front was clean and well looked after with a few amusement arcades, plenty of takeaway places and lifeguards. The town was really well looked after as well, a good range of shops and a proper independent retro cinema which we visited twice seeing as how it was only £4 for an adult and a quid for a bottle of Coke.
Felixstowe was a nice place and I’d definitely go there again for a holiday but probably not at the same caravan site.
