Ipswich is a cosmopolitan hub steeped in industrial and maritime heritage. The historic port has evolved into a vibrant and exciting location for enjoying life. Green open spaces complement the historic High Street buildings, juxtaposed with contemporary Waterside shops, leisure venues and modern industry headquarters. Travel easily to Norwich, Colchester or Cambridge by road or rail, and benefit from frequent, direct trains into London Liverpool Street.
Eclectic and exclusive shopping stand side by side in Ipswich. Unique boutiques, artisan cafes and independent hidden gems sit within historic Tudor shopfronts lining The Saints, the main thoroughfare between the town centre and the Waterfront. Flagship stores abound on the High Street, with further well-known names in the Buttermarket and Sailmakers shopping centres. Peruse the local Cornhill Market which is held four times a week, or spend an afternoon browsing the large John Lewis and other homeware stores, on the edge of town.
The stunning Waterside area has become the life and soul of the town whatever the time, day or night, packed with over a kilometre of contemporary bars, restaurants, shops and office space. Taste-buds can be tempted by the extraordinary range of food and drink on offer within the countless brasseries, traditional taverns and pavement cafes.

From musical showcases at the New Wolsey Theatre, to performances and classes at the bold and inventive DanceEast, and the best in touring shows at the Corn Exchange. Watch the latest movie release at the 12-screen Cineworld, or catch a weekend game at Ipswich Town football club.
