Worth experiencing this really incredible place. It's huge with ship so large when full they defy logic and look like they should sink....... Take a walk up the beach to see large ships effortlessly ploughing threw the waves, whilst to your left is Langaurd fort and a nature reserve.

Always busy, nice place to watch the ships being loaded and unloaded and going in and out of the port. Good car park overlooking the port near Landguard Fort with a cafe to one side with good views.

With approximately 3,000 ships each year, including the largest container vessels afloat today visit this port. There is a viewing area close to the port complete with a café and a fort.
