Ipswich enjoys a wonderful position on the meandering River Orwell and is known as East Anglia’s premier waterfront town.
For centuries, the river has been the lifeblood of the town; even today it acts as the social focal point for residents and visitors alike. The waterfront is a beautiful ‘jewel in the crown’ of Ipswich and seamlessly blends moored yachts, the iconic university building, a working port, modern apartments and the nationally renowned Jerwood DanceHouse alongside a lively mix of retail, bars and restaurants. Beyond this, Ipswich has three theatres, a thriving retail area and an abundance of independent boutiques and eateries in some of the most historic and architectural buildings in Suffolk. So much to enjoy, so little time!
