The premises are situated in the main trading area of Lowestoft near to Marks & Spencer, W H Smith, Boots, Wetherspoons and other main retailers and restaurant/ catering outlets; it is very close to the railway station and River Waveney, which provides access to the Broads and is just 200 yards from the sea front, beach and associated leisure facilities.
London Road North is pedestrianised and there are good public parking facilities close by – including those at the Britten Shopping Centre, a short walk to the north.
The premises were built around 1875 and form part of the old Post Office complex, situated within the Conservation Area in the town. They are of traditional brick construction with decorative stone work to the front facade, under offices on the first and second floor which may be the subject of re-development in the near future. The premises have not been used for some time and now require some refurbishment, although they do benefit from gas fired central heating.
