Living in Ipswich

Removals Ipswich

Ipswich has recently been listed as one of the ten best up and coming places to live in the UK by property magazine London Economic.

It’s not hard to see why either when you take into account its recently rejuvenated waterfront area and city park.

There’s also a wide range of affordable property currently on the market.

Waterfront

Ipswich Waterfront

Ipswich’s rejuvenated waterfront is a great local hangout spot.

With bustling bistros and an eclectic range of cafes and restaurants to choose from, it’s a great place to come to on your lunch break or for an evening with friends.

A gentle cruise along the scenic River Orwell is a popular pastime with several options starting at the marina, from intimate candlelit dining to birdwatching expeditions.

Foodie’s haven

In recent years, Ipswich has also earned a name for itself as a real ‘foodies haven’.

From modern dining at Aurora on the waterfront, to the finest Asian cuisines at Aqua Eight, there is something to match every palate.

The Thomas Wolsey Pub is also a popular local watering hole, named after one of Ipswich’s most famous inhabitants.

Park and beach life

Christchurch park, Ipswich

The county council recently received a £3.5m grant to refurbish Holywells park. As a designated  ‘park for pleasure’ covering a 67-acre conservation area it boasts a state of the art children’s play area designed around a galleon theme.

It was named ‘The Discovery’ after the ship which sailed to North America to found Jamestown in 1607. It’s a great day out for all the family with regular events organised here, as well as various nature trails to explore on foot.

If you want to escape, local beaches can also be found just a short distance away at Felixstowe and Dovercourt, with Frinton-on-sea just a short journey cross county.
