East Suffolk Lines

The East Suffolk Line is the railway linking Ipswich and Lowestoft, travelling through east Suffolk’s beautiful and unspoiled countryside. The line serves a string of towns in the east of the county, and the stations along the way provide ideal start and end points for the East Suffolk Line Walks series of 22 walks, taking you from Lowestoft to Felixstowe via many of east Suffolk’s charming towns and villages. For the more hardened walker, 11 of the walks can be joined up to make a long distance trail of over 70 miles!

Distance: 22 walks varying between 1.5 miles and 14 miles, or 71 miles for the joined up route
