Ipswich: A bustling hub just an hour from London

Ipswich: A bustling hub just an hour from London

Ipswich, one of the larger cities in the south-east of England, has plenty going for it. Whether you're located in the town centre or in one of its suburbs, you'll never be short on things to do once you've looked for property for sale in Ipswich.

Located just off the banks of the River Orwell, close to the ocean, Ipswich is perfectly primed for either a shopping trip or a stroll by the sea. Common Quay, located in Ipswich's docks is particularly worth a visit due to the enjoyable views and impressive number of ships moored there. 

The docks are now primarily used for leisure and retail activities while it also houses a number of residential apartments too. There are a number of other districts to Ipswich which all offer their own charm. 

Ipswich has a strong reputation for producing strong, local art with galleries being located at Christchurch Mansion, Town Hall and Electric House. The town also regularly hosts a market on the Saturday with food, arts and crafts all available courtesy of local residents.

The town also has an enviable location being so close to some of the region's beauty spots with many being found on the coast. Towns such as Southwold, Aldeburgh and Felixstowe are all a short drive away and offer their own seaside charm. 

Ipswich is remarkably easy to reach now thanks to its relative proximity to London as well as the network of roads that surround it. London's train stations are just a short commute away for both workers and visitors while the M11 and the A1 are both nearby. These roads both offer quick access further north. 

Nearby Harwich also offers ferry connections to Holland the further continent via it while Stansted Airport is just an hour's drive away. 

Ipswich's credentials are hard to ignore, no wonder so many people choose to live in the town. ADNFCR-1222-ID-800929064-ADNFCR
