Felixstowe station is the terminus of the Felixstowe Branch Line, and lies in the picturesque surroundings of Suffolk. The station was opened by the Great Eastern Railway in 1898, and was once officially visited by Queen Victoria, when she and five of her children holidayed in the seaside town. The red-brick, stone-dressed station building was described in the press at the time as having been built, "in a style which harmonises with its aristocratic surroundings". Today, the station runs hourly services through to Ipswich, calling at Trimley, Derby Road (Ipswich), Westerfield and Ipswich along the way. Not far from the station is Felixstowe Pier, a popular destination among visitors to the town. Once one of the longest in the country, the pier was intentionally demolished by Royal Engineers in World War II to prevent it being used as a landing point for enemy troops. Today it is home to an amusements arcade, and several traditional seaside chippies.
