Things to do in Kessingland, Suffolk

Kessingland Village lies between the towns of Southwold and Lowestoft, and is by-passed by the A12 trunk road. It used to be two seperate villages namely, Kessingland and Kessingland Beach, but with the number of new properties being built the two are now combined.

The population of Kessinglands is greatly increased in the summer months with the influx of visitors to the Holiday Village and Chalets.

The denes and beach are quite stony but in the springtime a great variety of wild flowers can be seen growing amongst the stones, also a lone fishing boat can usually be seen making it a very picturesque scene.

St. Edmunds Church with its 300 foot tower is partly obscured by trees, but within the large Churchyard stands the splendid War Memorial.

Kessingland has a number of small shops and supermarkets and fortunately has been able to retain its post office.

The village has several public houses, a working mans club and various business outlets.

Besides the great attraction of the beach area, there is the vast and very popular Wild Life Park namely 'Africa Alive', which is a great day out for both adults and children. All really well worth a visit.
