Guided Walks of Ipswich, with the town’s Tourist Guides take place every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of September and are a great way to discover the heritage of the County Town.
Starting at the Tourist Information Centre, in St. Stephen’s Church, at 2.15pm, the walks bring to life various aspects of the town’s 1500 years of history and heritage. In the Town Centre and on the Waterfront you will discover diverse architecture spanning over 800 years, hear tales of Tudor Merchants, find out about street names, discover famous people connected with the town and much more.
There is no need to book – just turn up at the Tourist Information Centre around 2.00pm and purchase your ticket, which costs just £4.00per person. Walks normally last around 90 minutes and are ideal for visitors and local people – however well you think you know the town!
