Join in the Lowestoft Mile, a new virtual walking project, funded by the Lowestoft and Northern Parishes Community Partnership; the Lowestoft Mile currently comprises four virtual walks around the local area, filmed using 360 virtual reality and drone footage. Developed by the East Suffolk Communities Team, all the walks are approximately one mile and are designed especially for people who are unable to leave their homes, including elderly people and those with health conditions. However, they are available for everyone to enjoy.

A calming virtual 360 walk along Lowestoft seafront and Kensington Gardens in Suffolk. This walk covers the southern section of Lowestoft's beaches, visiting a range of prominent historical locations along the way. Starting at Wellington Gardens, the walk continues south down the esplanade and passes notable sights such as Claremont Pier and Kensington Gardens. The walk also includes a range of historical facts about the town of Lowestoft and its beaches and fishing industry along the way.

Full details of this project are available on the Lowestoft Mile website.
