A joint ticket can be purchased at the ticket office of either Felixstowe Museum or Landguard Fort and provides entry to both attractions for less than the cost of two single tickets. A joint ticket for Adults is £9.70, Concessions £9.00 and Children 5-17 £5.00. Adults and Concessions both save more than 10% when compared with the price of two separate tickets. There is a small saving for children too.
Andy Calver, manager and curator of Felixstowe Museum said “Visitors to Felixstowe Museum can explore our 14 galleries depicting the extensive military and social history of Felixstowe, including the 'Frankie Goes To Felixstowe : Back to the '80s' exhibition' a celebration of the decade the museum opened its doors to the public. We've strong links with Landguard Fort – we occupy the Submarine Mining Establishment next door, an annex to the fort and there are strong military themes across both attractions. Making it better value to visit both us and the fort is great for our visitors”.
Nicola Barker, general manager of Landguard Fort added “Visitors to Landguard Fort can enjoy over 400 years of military, social and geopolitical history, with displays dating back to the 17th century, through to the Victorian era, two world wars and the Cold War. As Andy said, both the museum and the fort have a lot in common and compliment each other. Landguard Fort is an English Heritage site, so members get free access. So the joint ticket is relevant for non-members only.”
