Trains to Lowestoft

The Lowestoft Railway and Harbour Company commissioned Lowestoft station in 1847, and the company's logistical vision is to thank for the blissful scene that awaits train travellers as their carriage pulls up mere metres from the seafront and pedestrianised shopping district right in the heart of the town. Master builders the Lucas Brothers, who also constructed the Royal Albert Hall, built the station in the Italianate style - and the station's original signage remains. Lowestoft is the easternmost railway station in Britain. The arrival of rail boasted Lowestoft's population, which bloomed from less than 10,000 to 36,000 by the end of the 20th century, and today, after Ipswich, it is the most used station in Suffolk, with a bustling commuter clientele travelling along the Wherry Line to Norwich. It's also a popular holiday haunt with two Blue Flag beaches and several family attractions including Africa Alive!, formerly Suffolk Wildlife Park, Pleasurewood Hills theme park and the Marina Theatre all within the town's limits.
