LOCATION Lowestoft is a seaside town located in North East Suffolk and probably best known as being the most easterly part of the UK. The sandy beaches and numerous enjoyable seaside and historical walks provide a traditional seaside experience with the Blue Flag, award winning sandy beaches, Victorian seafront gardens, the Royal Plain Fountains and two piers. Number 34 High Street is located within the Conservation Area, forming the historic core of this modern town, with the house probably having been built as a merchant's house in the 1760s. Lowestoft retains much of its origins as a fishing port and market centre and subsequent development as a pleasure resort. The Conservation Area to the north of the High Street is mainly residential in character and is situated on the cliff overlooking the North Denes with the North Sea beyond. Lowestoft offers easy access to the Norfolk Broads network of waterways and the Regency seaside town of Southwold to the south.
