Pakefield lies on the edge of the coastal town of Lowestoft. Lowestoft, situated at the most easterly point in the British Isles, was developed in the mid 1800's into a fashionable Victorian seaside resort by Sir Morton Peto, the entrepreneur and civil engineer who built Nelson's Column and the Houses of Parliament. The town has two piers located on the south beach. The southerly pier, called Claremont Pier, originally served as a port of call for steamers traveling to and from London. It now provides a music venue, amusement arcade, roller-disco, fish and chip cafe and a separate, contemporary fresh fish and seafood restaurant and bar. There are many places of interest in the area including Pleasurewood Hills theme park to the north of the town, the East Anglia Transport Museum, Africa Alive, Oulton Broad, Belle Vue Park and Nicholas Everett Park with its pet corner. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has a residency at the Marina Theatre in town and the Seagull Theatre is just a short walk away from the property. There are three blue flag beaches, several good pubs and restaurants, ten-pin bowling, indoor swimming-pool and sports complex, riding school, cinema, theatre and an annual festival.  The Norfolk broads and the pretty towns of Beccles and Southwold are less than 30 minutes away by car, as is the excitement of Great Yarmouth's pleasure beach and unique Hippodrome circus
