The Anglia in Blooms judges have been given a tour of Lowestoft.
The judges visited the town on July 5, and started their tour at the water fountains by South Pier.
Using the seafront train, they travelled up the promenade stopping off at the Flying Fifteens cafe, viewing the hanging baskets on every other lamppost, and onto Wellington Gardens and Lord Kitchener's garden, walking though to Kirkley Cliff to view the guest houses.
Back on the train, judges visited the Hotel Victoria's sunken garden, before stopping at Kensington Gardens.
After a short break, they visited the bottom promenade, and took in the view of Lowestoft and Pakefield beach and all the colourful beach huts.
