Oddly enough, this charming Suffolk seaside town owes much of its character to a fire in 1659 which destroyed large parts of the town; the rebuild programme allowed for larger spaces between buildings giving the town generous green spaces and an unusually relaxed, traffic-light feel. Popular with second home owners yet still a functioning, close community with a decent smattering of good quality shops and eating places, the town’s main street is a good place to while away an hour or two of browsing before making for the famous pier, which dates from 1900 and is home to an eclectic and wonderful display of slightly bonkers Victorian-inspired arcade machines.
