All About Ipswich

If you're planning a romantic trip away, why not use Ipswich as your base to explore the glorious county of Suffolk. There are lots of things to do with the one you love and we've popped a few of thee below.

Christchurch Park, Ipswich

Go for a stroll through this wonderful park, which is only a few yards from the bustling town centre. See if you can catch a glimpse of Mabel the famous owl in her tree, enjoy the wildlife area and, of course, explore the fabulous mansion.

Ipswich Waterfront

Modern Ipswich at its best. As you meander round the marina, you could be in the glitzy south of France. Enjoy a coffee or something more substantial as you watch the world go by.


Soak up the history and enjoy the landscape which was immortalised by John Constable - many of the scenes are virtually unaltered.

Framlingham castle

Well, I couldn’t leave out my old home town, could I? A favourite spot in Suffolk is the 1,000 year-old castle, with its beautiful views over the mere and on to my old school, Framlingham College.


The archetypal English village, with the water splash at the bottom of the hill. Take the walk up to the church and then look back. Stunning.


A simply beautiful village with enough history and good places to eat and drink to make a whole romantic day of it.
