Ipswich has a rich heritage from its Anglo Saxon origins through a prosperous medieval age, and industrial 19th century to today’s revival of the historic waterfront, and what better way to explore the town than a guided walk.
When was the last time you looked up at the buildings above the shop fronts, or have you passed a sign on a wall or a piece of art work and wondered what it meant or why it was there?
A guided walk is a fantastic way of finding out about the history of Ipswich and they’re also a great way to meet new people and make new friends too.
Ipswich Tourist Information centre run a series of guided walks that are available from May until September on Tuesdays and Thursdays, at a cost of £3. There are also special themed walks available, which include refreshments at a cost of £6 per person. All guides are either Ipswich Tourist or Blue Badge registered and they have a wealth of knowledge about the town.
Whether you are a visitor to Ipswich or you have lived here all your life, you will learn something new on a guided walk. Too many times we go about our day-to-day business with out looking around us at the many things that make up the town.
All walks start at the Tourist Information Centre, St Stephen’s Lane and places can be pre-booked by calling 01473 258070. For more information about the many walk available call into the tourist information Centre and pick up their ‘Guided Walks Around Ipswich’ leaflet.
