From our hotels in Ipswich, it's easy to access the historic attractions of this ancient Anglo-Saxon settlement and Suffolk county seat. The 15th-century Ancient House, in the town center, is one of Ipswich’s most identifiable landmarks. Step inside this Tudor structure to see an astonishing array of wooden carvings depicting Tudor views of the world between 1660 and 1670. On the edge of town and close to our Ipswich hotels is Christchurch Mansion, which contains a collection of masterpieces by Suffolk natives Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable, as well as fine pottery, glass and clothing.
Our Ipswich hotels make it easy for you to get out and spend a sunny day in the green wilds of rural Suffolk. A short drive from Ipswich takes you to Sutton Hoo, one of the most important archaeological sites in the country, first unearthed in 1939. Walk around the ancient burial mounds, most likely the gravesite of an Anglo-Saxon king who was laid to rest in his wooden ship. Among the artifacts buried with him were a masked helmet and a lyre. Foodies head to Suffolk Food Hall, south of Ipswich. Set up by local farmers, this market sells fresh produce, home-baked bread, cheese and wine in a beautiful setting. The restaurant on the market's mezzanine level serves dishes made with locally sourced foods.
