What’s the best thing about living in Ipswich?

Ipswich waterfront
Ipswich waterfront

Described as ‘East Anglia’s Waterfront Town’, it has recently been ranked as among one of the best up-and-coming places to live in Britain.

  • Enviable coastal location – “Ipswich is located on the estuary of the River Orwell and is located near two areas of outstanding natural beauty. There are also a number of rural and coastal retreats on its doorstep.”
  • One of England’s oldest towns – “Ipswich’s history is ever-present throughout its architecture and has a number of Grade-1 listed buildings in the Buttermarket area that date from the 15th century.”
  • Extensive redevelopment – “Millions of pounds has been spent revamping Ipswich town centre, with a new spectacular water feature at the Cornhill. The waterfront has also benefitted from redevelopment and is now a thriving residential and commercial centre.”
  • Great transport links – “It’s only an hour’s train journey to the heart of London and with up to 60 trains a day, it’s well connected to the capital. It’s also got great links to Norwich, Colchester, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge.”
