Top things to do in your vacation to Ipswich - Explore Ipswich to its best

Ipswich is a town located in eastern England. The waterfront across the River Orwell is a favourite location of locals and tourists apart from the other attractions in the city.


Explore the city on foot

There is no better way to explore a city in order to learn about the culture, traditions and get to know the people unless you take a tour on foot. There is an advantage of doing this with an experienced and knowledgeable guide as they will explain all the significant locations and their importance. If you are unable to find a guide yourself you can request the Ipswich hotel you are staying at, to arrange a guided tour for you.


Sail down the river Orwell

Ipswich is located near the River Orwell which is one of the main attractions in the city. There is a variety of types of cruises that you can select from as this is one of the must-do activities in Ipswich for first-time visitors. There are simple day-cruises, brunch and afternoon-tea cruises as well as candlelight dinner cruises for those who wish to share the experience with their better half.


Explore the art at Christchurch Mansion

The Christchurch mansion was built in the 16th century as a gentleman's town-residence but has been transformed into a famous artists' gallery. It is open to the public and entrance is free of charge. There are many paintings, painting supplies and other materials that were used by some of the famous artists such as John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough on display. The Christchurch Mansion is located at walking distance from Oaks Aspire Apartments.


Enjoy the beautiful parks

If you love spending time outdoors in a tranquil and calm surrounding the parks in and around the city would be an ideal location to spend a few hours of relaxation. One of the most attractive parks is the Orwell Park which is located by the Orwell River allowing the visitors to enjoy the view of the river while sitting among trees and flowers.


Enjoy the Ipswich waterfront

Those who visit Ipswich, invariably visit the Ipswich waterfront. The waterfront has developed to cater to tourists and there are many hotels, restaurants, cafes and luxury apartments located along the side of the waterfront. Spending a night at one of the hotels will allow you to take a stroll along Orwell River under the moonlight and then wake up the following morning to a stunning view of the river. If you decide to stay at a hotel or apartment that is on the higher ground, you are able to witness a stunning sunrise.


Make time for the theatre

If you are a fan of cultural entertainment you should add a visit to the theatre to your itinerary. Even if you prefer deep thought provoking acts, comedies or even musicals, the theatre has many different performances for each and every audience.


Taste the delights at Ipswich

A trip to a city or country is incomplete unless you indulge in the local cuisine. Suffolk is known as the Foodie's County and Ipswich is a great place to start. The Food Hall in the town is the best place to start as they have fresh produce and cooked food.
