Full Description

Prime ground floor retail or restaurant premises in the heart of the main shopping area of Lowestoft

Lowestoft is a popular coastal town situated on the Norfolk/Suffolk border about 44 miles northeast of Ipswich and about 25 miles from the City of Norwich. Trains from Lowestoft Station - which is only 150 yards away - link to fast inter-city services from Norwich to London’s Liverpool St. Station. Gt. Yarmouth is about 9 miles to the north.

Ipswich itself lies approximately 70 miles north east of London, 55 miles south east of Cambridge, 43 miles south of Norwich, and 18 miles north east of Colchester. Major roads in the area include the A12, which provides good access from Lowestoft to the A14 in the south, a principal link from the Port of Felixstowe (9 miles to the south east of Ipswich) to the East Midlands.

There are good sailing facilities in Lowestoft from the Royal Norfolk & Suffolk Yacht Club and the nearby Norfolk Broads – a major tourist destination.

The premises are situated in the main trading area of the town near to Marks & Spencer, W H Smith, Boots, Wetherspoons and other main retailers and restaurant/ catering outlets; it is very close to the railway station and River Waveney, which provides access to the Broads and is just 200 yards from the sea front, beach and associated leisure facilities.

London Road North is pedestrianised and there are good public parking facilities close by – including those at the Britten Shopping Centre, a short walk to the north.

The premises were built around 1875 and form part of the old Post Office complex, situated within the Conservation Area in the town. They are of traditional brick construction with decorative stone work to the front facade, under offices on the first and second floor which may be the subject of re-development in the near future. The premises have not been used for some time and now require some refurbishment, although they do benefit from gas fired central heating.
