Our branch is located on Boss Road which is close to the main A14 road and can be reached by bus from Ipswich Train Station. Stanstead Airport is 90 minutes away on the X5 express coach service while travelling from Norwich Airport takes just 40 minutes by train.
With its location at the intersection of the fast and well-maintained A12 and A14 roads Ipswich makes the ideal base for exploring East Anglia while driving to the coastal and port town of Felixstowe takes just 30 minutes. Like all major cities, it is best to avoid travelling at peak hours if you can and having a Sat Nav will help you navigate the town's one-way systems which can be confusing to the first time visitor.
Parking within the city centre is mainly short term and expensive for longer stays. If you park a little further out and walk or get the bus into the centre then all day parking is more economical. There are also three Park and Ride bus services close to the A14. These are clearly marked with blue signs.
After having a drive around the city in your car hire vehicle take some time to explore the waterfront area on foot. The old grain store buildings on the docks are being replaced or upgraded into apartments and leisure attractions while the Ipswich Museum has some interesting exhibits covering local history. As you stroll look out for the town's old timber-framed buildings and the newer Willis Building, designed by the famous architect, Sir Norman Foster. Built in the 1970s this smoked glass building has an unusual shape and is topped by a roof garden. For more active visitors a dry ski slope, golfing range and go-karting track are all within an easy drive of the town centre.
Ipswich is a town that loves its football and fans are sure to find a tour of Ipswich Town Football Club the highlight of their visit. A Get Behind the Blues stadium tour gives a unique insight into the world of professional football. You can walk through the tunnel before visiting the dressing rooms and director's box. Look out for the statues of football legends, Sir Alf Ramsey and Sir Bobby Robson.
Younger family members will enjoy a visit to Jimmy's Farm where they can meet all the animals and find out about life on a working farm. There's also an adventure playground and for parents, a farm shop to browse.

Once a major port, Woodbridge on the River Deben is now a pretty marina town with a quaint centre and plenty of antique shops. Just outside town is a mill that survives from the dozen that were built to provide bread for the soldiers stationed in the area during the Napoleonic Wars.
Continuously occupied since the Saxon period, the town was once one of the most important ports in England. Much of its medieval wealth came from trading Suffolk wool with the continent. The town is still a working dock while until recently brewing was also an important part of the economy. The main economic sectors today are research and development at the Adastral Science Park, as well as financial services and retail. There are also several call centres located in the town. The IP-City Centre is a modern business and convention venue located near the waterfront.
