Surrounded by stunning rural landscapes and a pretty coastline, Ipswich in Suffolk is one of England's oldest towns, with over a thousand years of nautical and farming heritage to discover. Visit the beautiful Christchurch Mansion and explore the period rooms from the Tudor kitchen to the Georgian saloon and the Victorian wing. Christchurch Mansion is also host to the biggest collection of Gainsborough and Constable paintings outside London. Or how about the Ipswich Museum, a treasure trove of natural and ancient history exhibitions including a life-sized model of a woolly mammoth, fondly known as Wool-I-Am. If you fancy hitting the water then head down to Ipswich's bustling marina and take a boat trip along the picturesque River Orwell.
