Overview of Ipswich

The town of Ipswich is located North East of Gatwick airport a distance of 100 miles that would take around 1 hour 45 minutes by taxi via the M25 and A12. Ipswich is located on the estuary of the River Orwell, in the county of Suffolk.

Ipswich is one of England's oldest towns, and took shape in Anglo-Saxon times (in the 7th 8th centuries) around Ipswich dock. The modern name is derived from the medieval name 'Gippeswick', probably taken from the River Gipping which is the non-tidal section of the River Orwell. Towards 700 AD, Frisian potters from the Netherlands area settled in Ipswich and set up the first large-scale potteries in England since Roman times. Their wares were traded far across England, and the industry was unique to Ipswich for 200 years. King John granted the town its first charter in 1200, laying the medieval foundations of its modern civil government. In the next four centuries it made the most of its wealth, trading Suffolk cloth with the Continent. In the time of Queen Mary the Ipswich Martyrs were burnt at the stake on the Cornhill for their Protestant beliefs. A monument commemorating this event now stands in Christchurch Park. In 1835, Charles Dickens stayed in Ipswich and used it as a setting for scenes in his novel The Pickwick Papers. The hotel where he resided first opened in 1518; it was then known as The Tavern and later became known as the Great White Horse Hotel. Dickens made the hotel famous in chapter XXII of The Pickwick Papers, vividly describing the hotel's meandering corridors and stairs. The building now houses branches of Starbucks and Cotswold Outdoor.

Ipswich Harbourfront and Quay has and is still undergoing a regeneration project, though it still makes for a fabulous place to take a stroll and enjoy the local restaurants, pubs, coffee houses and view the passing boats.
