About Lowestoft Office
Lowestoft Office

Lowestoft, the most easterly town in the United Kingdom, was established as a fishing village in the early 14th century but the decline in the fishing area has seen a substantial decrease in the number of vessels fishing from our town. The town enjoys a reasonable level of tourism in the summer months with a large number of tourist attractions in close proximity – the most significant being our award-winning beaches where the Lowestoft Seafront Air Festival is held annually which has attracted in excess of 400,000 people over two days. Lowestoft is renowned for the quality and cleanliness of its beaches, these beaches are considered to be some of the very best in Northern Europe. Lowestoft offers a number of exciting attractions in or just outside the town including Pleasurewood Hills home to over 40 rides, shows and attractions, Africa Alive – African Animal Adventure Park and Somerleyton Hall and Gardens, an impressive early Victorian stately home featuring lavish architecture and around 12 acres of beautiful gardens including the famous 1846 Yew hedge maze.

According to the 2001 Census, Lowestoft had a population of 57,746. With significant local housing developments in recent years, this figure is more likely around 75,000.

Lowestoft is home to the UK’s most Easterly point, Ness Point and is marked by the ‘Euroscope’ – “a unique circular platform that shows the direction and distances of major European towns and Great Britain’s other cardinal points”. The town sits between the Eastern-most point of the Norfolk Broads (Oulton Broad) and the North Sea.

The nearest city to Lowestoft is Norwich, in Norfolk. It’s approximately 30 miles from Lowestoft and is linked to by road and rail. It’s also the home of our nearest airport, Norwich International. London is a little over 100 miles away.

The town is split in two by Lake Lothing, a body of water that adjoins Oulton Broad and the North Sea. The North and South sides of the town are linked by two bridges (Mutford Bridge in Oulton Broad and the Bascule Bridge in Lowestoft town centre).
