I am a professional Lowestoft photographer, providing a range of services in the town. Lowestoft is a traditional seaside resort on the North Sea Coast. It has wide sandy beaches. The south beach near the Claremount Pier is much loved by holiday makers and beach sport enthusiasts.
A promenade with hotels and cafes, pictured below lines much of the south beach. The town has a shopping centre, lighthouse, two piers and is the most easterly point in Great Britain. It is a real shame that more is not made of this status in the same way as Lands End and John O’Groats. The fountain of water jets just to the side of the beach promenade are a must for children.

The Beach and Pier
The image above demonstrates the wide sandy beach. The wind turbine in the distance is on the most easterly point of the United Kingdom.
The traffic free promenade is a great place to stroll alongside the beach. It has hotels and shops along the way where you can purchase ice creams and refreshments.
Alongside the promenade are some lovely gardens where you can sit and watch the world go by.

The Scores are paths that link the town to the old beach village.

Unlike Lands End in the south and John O’Groats in the north as you can see from these images, not much is made of the most easterly point in Great Britain. Plans are in place to rectify this situation to help promote the tourist industry.

Lowestoft Carnival was one of the best carnivals in the Eastern region. I visited it many times and was highly impressed by the effort put into dressing up and preparing the floats. Sadly in recent years the carnival has not taken place. It appears that with the closure of the hospital that the carnival supported, the event has been cancelled indefinitely.
I provide a range of photography services in Lowestoft. To find out more, please visit my services pages, listed on the top menu bar.
