Lowestoft is to the east, while Great Yarmouth is to the north-east; both are nearby towns. Located on the banks of the Waveney, close to the boundaries of The Broads National Park, is the town of Waveney.

In 1978, Beccles became twinned with the French town of Petit-Couronne.

A piece of public property known as Beccles Common may be found in the town’s northwest corner. Central to Beccles Common is a pillbox from either 1940 or 1914, both of which date to the Second World War.  Boney’s Isle is a man-made hill in the center of the common. This place was once known as Bonaparte Island, thus the name. Boney’s Island derives from two different places. More commonly, it was a Napoleonic prisoner-of-war camp.
