SaintsImage2.jpg?mtime=20170721152549#asset:207The Saints is one of the main thoroughfares lining the town centre to the historic waterfront and is home to an eclectic mix of independent shops and eateries.

The area is a great place to start your exploration of Ipswich as it is steeped in history. Many of the buildings date back to the Tudor times and the streets provide visitors with a real sense of the town's heritage. The most famous connection is to Cardinal Wolsey who was born here. His statue on St Peter's Street marks his place of birth.


The Saints is a quirky and interesting area and is a great place to spend a morning, or longer, exploring its shops and boutiques before you enjoy an artisan coffee or lunch. The many restaurants , drawing on cuisines from around the world, also provide a vibrant night-time destination.

In June and November St Peter's Street plays host to a craft and vintage market, showcasing a wonderful mix of local artisans, but you don't need to wait until then to start exploring.

You'll find the Saints close to the town centre and the railway station is only a short walk away. The area is also served by good parking facilities.
