Suffolk's county town may not be a city by definition, but it certainly has just as much to offer.
If you’re coming to Ipswich on a short break, the Salthouse Harbour Hotel is a fine place to rest your head. A four-star boutique hotel, it mixes quality rooms with excellent dining and a desirable location on Ipswich’s lively waterfront.
When you want to explore, head out towards the town centre and discover Christchuch Mansion, a beautiful Grade I-listed Tudor building with the largest collection of Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable paintings outside of London.
The River Orwell has been a central part of Ipswich for centuries so why not explore it on a relaxing river cruise? Sail through beautiful Suffolk countryside, past historic Pin Mill to the Stour estuary where the two rivers empty out into the sea.
For a taste of East Anglia, head to Suffolk Food Hall - an array of delicacies await to either take back to your self-catering pad or gifts for others.
