The Museum is located at Landguard Point, adjacent to the Dock Viewing Area, where there is ample free parking. The scheduled hourly Number 77 bus service from Ipswich via Felixstowe to Landguard will deliver you to our gates. You can also reach us by the foot ferry from Harwich and Shotley. The Museum is also on National Cycle Route 51 , which takes you along the seafront and across Landguard Common. Those feeling energetic may like to take in the sea breeze and walk to the Museum along Felixstowe’s beautiful promenade. The Museum is 2.5 miles from the town centre.

The nearest public toilets may be found at the Landguard Visitor Centre adjacent to the John Bradfield Viewing Area.
