  • Entrance to Landguard Nature Reserve View Point Road, Felixstowe IP11 3TW United Kingdom (map)

Landguard Nature Reserve is a special place and a great location for beachcombing.

Meeting point: Meet at the black gates at the entrance to Landguard Nature Reserve directly opposite the car park with the bus stop in it. Landguard Fort will be on your right. I will be obvious in a bright yellow hi viz jacket.

Please join me ten minutes before the beachcomb begins so we can start promptly. Sorry, but if you are late you won't be able to join us.

Do I need to book? No. 

How much does it cost? £4 for each person. 

What age is this suitable for? All ages. Beachcombing is suitable for children and adults alike.  Hunting for treasure on our beaches is addictive whatever your age, so all are welcome. Children must be supervised at all times by their accompanying adults.

What should I wear? It can be windy and cold on the beach even on a sunny day so wrap up with lots of layers for warmth and against the wind. Please wear shoes suitable for walking on shingle - flip-flops or open-toed sandals will be uncomfortable.

How long will it last?  An hour and a half.

What if it's horrible weather? The weather can be very changeable but the beachcomb will go ahead unless it's torrential rain or high winds make the beach dangerous.

Is there parking? There is plenty of free parking at Landguard. There is one large car park opposite the entrance to Landguard Nature Reserve and another adjacent to the Visitor Centre.

Can I bring my dog? Well behaved dogs, kept on a short lead, are welcome. 

I can’t make this date, will there be others? Yes, there are Beach Bonkers beachcombing events throughout the year.
