Exciting news – a new, larger, and permanent Visit Felixstowe Visitor Information Centre is to be ‘purpose-built’ on the seafront. The location of this new facility will be just up from the current TIC beach hut, closer to Felixstowe Pier.
The current hugely popular TIC beach hut opened in 2016 and now welcomes around 10,000 visitors a year. It is manned by over 40 volunteers, known as Visit Felixstowe Ambassadors.
They offer a wealth of knowledge and expert advice to visitors, alongside the provision of leaflets and maps on attractions, places to stay, eat and shop, transport links and events. The beach hut is normally open all year round, seven days a week (when weather allows).
The new facility which will incorporate the Visit Felixstowe branding will be a fully accessible location, with more space and a connection to electricity so it can be utilised for many more things including into the evening.
Clare Baker from Felixstowe Forward, says “We are so exciting about this new permanent facility which will allow us to offer all the current services, but also lots more room to include more displays and useful information. Our fantastic band of VF Ambassadors love to share and provide visitors with the most up-to-date knowledge and advice so that visitors can make the most of their time enjoying Visit Felixstowe”.
