All aboard the Harwich Harbour Foot Ferry!

The Harwich Harbour Foot Ferry is the best way to see the local area, with daily trips across to Felixstowe and Shotley, and seal watching tours over to Hamford Water. We took the passenger boat to Felixtowe and the Landguard Nature Reserve - this is a must-see experience with a stunning sandy beach waiting for you to discover, as well as plenty of wildlife, and the excellent Landguard Fort.

First time at Dovercourt Beach

On my recent visit to Dovercourt Bay I was seriously impressed by the standard of stunning shingle beach - what a treat! Walk along the prom and feel transported back to Victorian England with its quaint beach huts, ices, miniature yachting pond and iconic lighthouse structures built in the 1860s. Nowhere else I have been in Essex can match what's on offer at Dovercourt: history, natural beauty, blue-flag beaches and plenty going on! Thank you Dovercourt, I'll be back with the family.
