Situated on The Broads and forming part of the Waveney Valley, Beccles is a thriving market town with an interesting history providing a blend of independent shops and multinational chains, restaurants and other services and attractions providing something for everyone.
It is approximately 10 miles from Lowestoft with both rail and bus stations providing links to Ipswich and Norwich (and onto London) as well as a direct ‘A’ road link with Norwich and the A11 corridor about 20 miles away.
The town provides the main focus for employment for the surrounding area with the town centre being the focal point for employment in the retail, commercial and business sector. The nearby Ellough Industrial Estate and Business Park accommodates a large percentage of industrial employment uses with a mixture of modern buildings, warehouses, storage areas and office units. Parts of these employment areas are also covered within the Enterprise Zone for the town providing planning and business incentives and making Beccles an attractive prospect for businesses.
