Dotted along the coast as war-time fortifications to repel invading forces these exist in a varying degree of conditions from almost derelict to converted holiday homes. The walk along the cliff top and adjacent to the golf course will provide you with both extremes. Great...More

We come to Suffolk to walk the coast paths, beaches and riverside paths. The Martello towers bring walks alive with their historical atmosphere, and they show how far you've walked, or how far you still have to go! The walk from Felixstowe to Felixstowe Ferry...More

Between 1804 and 1812 eight Martello Towers were built on our shores to repel Napoleonic invasion. These squat, ovoid-shaped brick-built towers were immensely strong and were modelled on a gun tower at Martella in Corsica. Today a few left in Felixstowe.

well worth walking along and reading the information boards. The tower has an interesting history and is along a nice walk with a coffee booth and toilets at the end.

It's an interesting relic but once you've looked at it from the outside there's not much else to do. It isn't particularly attractive, just a long standing relic of the England's perpetual troubles with the continent!!
