Ipswich in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... want something individual. The shopping streets are well laid out, two paralell streets which run from one to the other, which makes shopping pretty straightforward. The nightlife can be a bit varied to be honest. As an East Anglian town it's no surprise to find an abundance of pubs. There is also available an Ollie's cocktail bar, and recently a string of other bars have sprung up near Pals. Now for clubbing this is a different matter. I would highly reccommend NOT visiting the Fire and Ice club, it is empty and quite a dark and dingy club. Liquid however is usually pretty good - great size, and offers a variety of nights, including alte... more

Ipswich is a historic Town, however the town is horribly laid out with just your bog standard high street shops. The town was recently voted as the worst place in the UK for customer service and satisfaction...i cant think why. The only redeeming quality of Ipswich is Christchurch park

Unfortunately, Ipswich is now well-reknowned for the terrible goings-on from three years ago. However, don't let that put you off visitng this town! There are two good-sized shopping centres, which hold New Look, Topshop, Warehouse, Boots, Julian Graves and more! They also often have mini-stalls selling customised bags and t-shirts which is great if you want something individual.

Ipswich has the slight disadvantage of being classed as 'East Anglian'. Any East of England tag tends to mean one of three things - that no-one really has much knowledge of it...no-one's that interested...or it's assumed to be a bit backward. Well listen up non-believers. Ipswich has a lot to be proud of. The regeneration around the docks is underway. It's a sight to behold on a crisp sunny day; as the cranes arch over the bustling cafes on the waterside. Spend some time in this lovely little town and you'll see a place that's unafraid of the future. Though its heritage is apparent wherever you look (I don't know many other places that can boast a cook shop ... Read the complete review

Ipswich town is the county town of suffolk and is one of its biggest towns with over 128,000 inhabitants. Ipswich is one of Englands oldest towns and began to take shape in the Anglo-Saxon times aswell as forming an important route to access local docks and coastal areas during the roman times. There was also a period called Ipswichian before the last ice age over 120,000 years ago which is where ipswich got its name from. Although Ipswich has had some bad press recently mainly due to the recent prostitutes killings aswell as featuring on Britians roughest pubs it is usually a calm and relaxing village with alot of history behind it.

Ipswich is located towards the south of Suffolk with a population of around 125,000 people. Although Ipswich is the county town of Suffolk, it is still a town, not a city. Ipswich has a long history, and there are many historic buildings still left, such as Christchurch Mansion and Ancient House. There are also many ancient churches, although sadly, many of these are no longer in use, and a few look quite out of place, especially those near the docks development. Arguably one of the town's most famous previous residents was Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, who became one of Henry VIII's most important advisers, before falling out of favour after failing to ...
