Hop on board a winter wildlife cruise

Ipswich, Suffolk

Enjoy a River Cruise aboard a barge, visit Constable at Christchurch Mansion and enjoy a relaxing stay at The Salthouse Harbour Hotel.

Enjoy a River Cruise aboard the beautiful Sailing Barge Victor - built in Ipswich in 1895 and completely refurbished for public cruising. Experience the varied wildlife and beauty of the Rivers Orwell and Stour in a style and pace of a bygone era. SB Victor’s winter cruises are accompanied by bird experts and spotters and include a hearty breakfast brunch in a bun and never ending supply of tea and coffee. There is a well-stocked bar in her cosy saloon, complete with wood burning stove.

Once back on shore, head to Christchurch Mansion, in the heart of Ipswich, for a world-class collection of art by Constable and Gainsborough. Finish your day with a stay at The Salthouse Harbour Hotel, right on Ipswich’s waterfront.
