Leiston is located along Suffolk's popular Heritage Coastline, close to the charming seaside town of Aldeburgh. Leiston offers a great selection of homes, ranging from modern purpose built flats, attractive period cottages through to detached family residences of all sizes. Leiston provides very easy access to Ipswich as it is sufficiently close to the A12 trunkroad and there is a regular direct rail service to London from Saxmundham, which is four miles away.
Leiston's (link to town council website) local amenities include a library/resource centre, a health centre, a modern Leisure Centre with swimming pool and associated facilities, cinema and weekly market. The nearby beach is excellent for bathing and there are many enjoyable walks along the coast to Thorpeness or northwards to Dunwich, and the RSPB reserve at Minsmere. Sailors will enjoy the coast and the proximity to the River Deben. In the locality too there are a number of local golf courses and an equestrian centre.
For children and families Leiston has its own with a nursery class and a Children's Centre.
