Living in Beccles

Sitting at the southern point of the Suffolk and Norfolk Broads, Beccles is a town that thrives on its community spirit. An historic market town steeped in history, Beccles is as peaceful as it is popular.

Located on the banks of the River Waveney, festivals and entertainment events such as Beccles Carnival, The Duck Race and the Late Night Christmas Event are held throughout the year. 

Set among rolling countryside, the town centre is situated only a couple of minutes away from the development. Consisting of market squares and winding streets, Beccles contains a number of independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Home to everything from designer fashion stores to delicatessens, so there's lots to see and do. 

The River Waveney is the real star of the town, and these placid waterways are a great way to spend an afternoon. Day boats can all be hired, but a skippered boat provides the perfect way to explore the surroundings. 

For anyone looking to stay active, Beccles Lido is the place to be in the summer months. As well as having plenty of paved and grassy places to enjoy the summer sun and watch the world go by, there's also a heated outdoor swimming pool. 

If you're interested in history, then Beccles also provides plenty to discover. Once a flourishing Saxon sea port, Beccles contains a number of Grade 1 listed buildings, including the Leman House in Ballygate, which is the home of the Beccles Museum. The 97 ft. Bell Tower is another historical landmark in the town. Detached from the main body of the church, it offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. Guided tours are also available at certain times of the year.
