Your Destination

Ipswich, in Suffolk, is a delightful place to visit. 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 Dance Studio alongside a lively mix of retail, bars and restaurants. 

Or for something a little more relaxed, you can head to Dedham and Flatford to hire out a boat, go for a stroll and admire the beautiful area that inspired so many of John Constable’s famous paintings.
