As Britain’s most easterly town, Lowestoft is the first place in the country to see the sunrise. Boasting two Blue Flag beaches, this pretty seaside town is loved by all whether you are a swimmer, surfers or a bucket and spader. Children in particular adore Lowestoft, making it the perfect choice for a last minute weekend away. If you are thinking of a cottage break, then Lowestoft is home to some of the most popular family attractions in Suffolk. Africa Alive is a particular favourite, and provides children with a fantastic opportunity to come face to face with some of the earth’s most rare animals. After a long day in the wild, the whole family can retreat back to the safety and comforts of your very own last minute cottage.
