There are many familiar national retailers in the town, but what gives you all the more reason to visit are the quirky independent shops, cafes and restaurants that make Beccles unique.

The sense of community For visitors from larger towns, it might take a while to get used to locals bidding you good morning as you pass them in the street. But as you settle in, this sense of community is a wonderful thing. It helps the town feel safe and friendly – and indeed, crime is very rare. There a host of wonderful community events throughout the year. The Beccles Carnival, The Duck Race and The Harvest Moon Free Music Festival are just a few examples.

Perfect for those lazy, hazy days of summer, if you have kids, having this on your doorstep is a real win. And as a bonus – it is heated! There are some great places to live in Beccles Thanks to the town’s long and varied history, there are a wide range of housing styles on offer. From Georgian townhouses in Northgate to quaint cottages on Ballygate and Victorian Terraces around Denmark Road, if you’re after character, there are some lovely properties. As one of the fastest growing market towns in the country we can all celebrate the wonder that is our home.
