At the viewing point you can observe some of the largest container ships in the world. Also see the coming and going of all the shipping that uses this Estuary, cafe there for drinks and eats.

The viewpoint is a favourite place of ours, to be so close to these giant ships is brilliant. It is a shame that the council is going to make it a pay and display car park.

Staying in Felixstowe we stopped off at Lanyard Point to watch the container ships come into the Port. Very impressive given the size of everything. Well worth stopping by to watch the world go by!
