Dog walking

There are plenty of walks to be had around Felixstowe. From coastal walks starting at the Felixstowe Ferry running all the way down to Landguard Point, to routes around Old Felixstowe and any number of combinations in between.

Dogs are welcome on all of the beach in winter however, in the summer (May 1st to September 30th) there are restrictions and no dogs are allowed on the stretch of beach from Spa Pavilion to Wheeler Road. This area is signed, so it is easy to find and comply with the restriction.

At Landguard Point dogs are welcome but must be kept on a short, fixed lead in some areas as there is sensitive wildlife and terrain in the Nature Reserve. There are no restrictions on the rest of the beach, other than for owners to clean up after their dogs.  A map of the dog walking zones can be found on the Discover Landguard’s website.

Discover Suffolk have put together a 6.5 mile circular walk from Landguard Fort in and around Felixstowe town taking in many points of interest. A pdf of the walk including map and information on the various points can be downloaded from their website here.

Starting and finishing at the White Horse, there is a circular pub walk taking around an hour and covering approximately 3 miles, or it’s just a 10-minute walk from the pub to the path along Cliff Road and the sea.  For full directions (including a printable version) visit

For the keen distance walkers, meeting in Felixstowe are the Suffolk Coast Path, which consists of a 50-mile walk from Felixstowe to Lowestoft, and the Stour and Orwell Walk, a 42-mile walk from Felixstowe to Cattawade and Manningtree. Further information can be found on Suffolk Coast & Heaths’ website.
