ShoppingImage2.jpg?mtime=20170727130823#asset:310What shopping tribe are you? Are you high street or indie? Ipswich is fast becoming a hub for independent shopping, boasting an eclectic mix of boutiques, home and giftware stores and great artisan coffee. Combined with a trip to the main high street, surrounding the Cornhill, it's a perfect destination for a great day of retail therapy.

Many of our indie shops are located in the Saints area of Ipswich. This is one of the town's oldest and most historical areas, and it provides a great backdrop for some interesting and unique shops. There is accessible car parking and is perfectly situated being five minutes from the town and the waterfront.

Ipswich's retail offer is changing and developing rapidly. Exploring its many attractive streets will reward you with some retail gems, from beautiful blooms to scented candles, Scandi womenswear to Italian menswear, painted furniture to original art. Why not take the time to learn a new skill such as knitting, sewing or play the guitar. Some of our passionate indies will be more than willing share their secrets.
