Very helpful lady carefully explained the highlights of Ipswich and the surrounding area. We were given a map, which she annotated and lots of useful advice about timings and openings.

A very well stocked centre for information about Ipswich and the rest of the county. To get information about the many ancient buildings around the town, ask for the free leaflet for the Town Centre Trail. It will guide you around the key sites, explaining their significance and history in a few brief phrases. The tour needs a minimum 90... More

Popped into centre to get a map of the town, spoke to a lovely lady who gave us lots of information a out Ipswich and marked p!aces of interest on the map for us. She was also able to give us a list of local restaurants and real ale pubs. Well done, you are doing a fantastic job.

This really is an information centre which from the outside, belies what is inside. It was once a town centre church but has been the information centre for many years. Inside it is laid out most attractively and apart from Information about the local area, it has many unique and likeable things for sale. The staff are very helpful and... More

This great service is housed in a beautiful building that just calls you to go in and take a look. Inside it is attractively lit with plenty of leaflets and information plus friendly staff. There was an exhibition of artwork by various artists and while some of it was lovely there were some photos printed on canvas that were very... More

We had 24 hours to spend in the Ipswich area and headed confidently in to the visitor info centre. It certainly looked lovely from the outside being located in a medieval church. BUT, why on earth would it be closed on a Sunday? Surely that would be the most likely time for visitors to be having a look around a... More
