Somewhere special...

This iconic area is what makes Ipswich 'East Anglia's Waterfront Town'. This vibrant area of the town is alive with restaurants, cafes and bars; all perched on the waters edge. A great place day and night; watch world-class dance at DanceEast, hop on an Orwell River cruise or relax in the sumptuous Salthouse Harbour Hotel.
