Ipswich Travel guide
Ipswich : Michelin's recommendations
This lively town at the head of the Orwell estuary was a major port and trading centre in the Middle Ages. Today, Ipswich is mostly Victorian and modern in character, but has retained its Anglo-Saxon street layout and about a dozen medieval churches (just the towers of some remain). The Tower Ramparts exist in name only; now a vast pedestrian area including the Buttermarket shopping precinct.
