Morning Walk with the Ipswich Women’s History Trail

Follow in the footsteps of inspirational Ipswich women – an opportunity to discover how women have contributed through the ages to all aspects of Ipswich life. The self-guided walk will take you across the town and leaflets can be picked up at the Tourist Information Centre.

Shopping and Lunch down The Saints

Enjoy the independent shops of Ipswich down the picturesque and historic street of St Nicholas and St Peter. Find an old antique in Maud’s Attic or a buy gorgeous bunch of flowers at Myrtle and Mint. Kick back and relax with a light bite lunch at the award winning Applaud Coffee. Don’t forget to visit Cardinal Thomas Wolsey’s statue at the junction of Silent Street, born in Ipswich in 1470.

Afternoon Theatre at the Sir John Mills

Join Eastern Angles at their home in the historic Sir John Mills Theatre which actually used to be a Victorian school. Eastern Angles have an East Anglian flavour to all their shows and focus on new writing. Take in one of their new productions in this intimate theatre space for an afternoon treat.

Early Dinner at Bistro on the Quay

Walk past the historic buildings of the Waterfront, including the Old Custom House, and head to Bistro on the Quay. Housed in a former salt warehouse, the restaurant overlooks the new marina. Offering set menus and the best seafood in town, take in the beautiful views whilst having a delicious meal at Bistro.

Red Rose Chain Comedy Night

Head to the Avenue Theatre at Red Rose Chain’s home for a hilarious comedy night out. The theatre, opened in 2014, ends onto Gippeswyk Hall – another hidden historic gem in Ipswich. Previous comedians who have performed at The Avenue include Henning Wehn and Paul Foot.
