Things to do in Pakefield, Suffolk
The seaside village of Pakefield lies on the southern outskirts of the town of Lowestoft with the village of Kirkley in between.
It is a popular holiday village with a large well-known campsite which at specific times of the year holds functions for local people.
There is also plenty of alternative accommodation for holidaymakers near the sea.
The cliffs and beach are an attraction for fossil hunters, especially after a heavy storm.
The thatched Church of All Saints and St Margarets sits proudly on the clifftop, it has one tower and two naves due to the fact that it used to be two separate churches.
There is normally a sheep in the graveyard busily keeping the grass short and tidy.
Various small shops are in the centre of the village with a large supermarket close by.
Pakefield has Hotels, Public Houses, an Art Centre and Riding Stables.
Things to do around Pakefield
For a day out, and within easy reach, there is Lowestoft with it's historic High Street, Kessingland Wild Life Park and Oulton Broad which is the southern gateway to the Norfolk Broads, three entirely different attractions.
With it's close proximity to Lowestoft, which is the first place in Great Britain to see the sunrise, it is well worth making the effort to go to the beach early morning in favourable weather so as not to miss this brilliant spectacle, awesome.
