Sparrows Nest

Sparrows Nest Park, located in the North of Lowestoft by the Suffolk Coastline, benefits with a children's play park, a vibrant Italian restaurant and idyllic café. With crisp patches of green it brims with nature, from deep-rooted trees to modest wildlife. The park is home to three museums, each with historical backstories, the Lowestoft Movie Maker Club and bowls club. During the summer Sparrows Nest hosts a number of events within the park.

Sparrows Nest is located just below Belle Vue Park and the lighthouse which still operates today. It is also across the path from the most easterly park in the United Kingdom, The Ness.

Virtual Walking Project:

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 stunning VR 360 immersive virtual walk from Lowestoft Lighthouse to Ness Point walk, ending in the most easterly point in the UK. Starting at Lowestoft Lighthouse, this walk takes viewers through some of Lowestoft's well-known parks and gardens, including historic Belle Vue and Sparrow’s Nest Park, and featuring the new Ness Park, the most easterly park in the UK. The walk includes information about the parks and their history, as well as two museums, the Lowestoft War Memorial Museum and the Lowestoft Maritime Museum.

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