New season at Landguard

The Landguard Peninsula at Felixstowe in Suffolk is making final preparations for the start of the main opening season for 2016.

Landguard Fort will be reopening from this Friday, 25th March – then daily until Monday 31st October, 10am-5pm.

Felixstowe Museum reopens on Easter Sunday (27 March), then every Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday, plus Wednesday 6 April, then every Wednesday from June to the end of September, and every Thursday during August, 12pm-5pm. Closes on Sunday 30 October. As usual the Landguard Nature Reserve and Landguard Visitor Centre and View Point Cafe are open daily all year round.
2016 will see another full calendar of events at Landguard, from Photography Workshops, summer open air theatre (Gulliver’s Travels) and historical re-enactments, to puppet shows, classic cars and pirates! The hugely popular Spooky Day, Little Fort of Horrors and Christmas at Landguard Fort events are also back too.

There are two special walks linked to the Suffolk Walking Festival, new exhibitions to enjoy at the Felixstowe Museum, and the popular Photography Competition is open to both amateur and professional photographers to take their favourite shots of the Peninsula.

To start off the new season, Easter fun includes a special quiz trail at Landguard Fort (Friday 25 March to Sunday 10 April) and a fun Easter Bunny Hunt on the Nature Reserve (Wednesday 30 March), complete with a giant rabbit and lots of chocolate!

Stephen Rampley, Landguard Marketing and Events Co-ordinator said: “The Landguard Peninsula and its attractions are getting more and more popular every year. Once again we have put together a fun-packed events programme full of old favourites and some new ones too. Landguard offers something for all ages and interests, from wonderful beaches and amazing history, to giant ships and unique flora and fauna. We look forward to welcoming our visitors throughout 2016.”
