Ipswich Tourist Guides, and the Town’s Tourist Information Centre, have arranged a special Guided Walk to take place on Saturday 22nd November.
The walk, entitled “What We Ate in Times Gone By”, will have the theme of food in Ipswich through the ages – what we ate, where it came from, who produced it and how. You will hear about some of the characters in town, including a Tudor Butcher regularly up in Court for selling rancid meat, the wealthy townsman who had the “Fish Market” moved from outside his residence, through to elegant Edwardian Tea Rooms that graced the town. Through the ages Ipswich has seen it all – and eaten most of it!
The walk will commence at the Tourist Information Centre, St Stephen’s Church, St Stephen’s Lane at 10.30am. and will last approximately 90 minutes. The cost is just £3.00 per person and places must be booked in advance through the Tourist Information Centre as places are limited – contact 01473 258070 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The food theme of the walk is to fit in with the Tourist Information Centre’s annual autumn “Taster Day”. Staff will be giving away free samples of delicious local produce including Suffolk jams, chutney’s and juices as well as a tasty, hot, alcohol free, punch.
