A Very Old Gate
Aug 2018
Not in a picturesque location right by the main road. The gate looks like it's is in it's original condition and deteriorating. Needs anice garden round it rather than a busy main road.

Pretty good as gates go

This must be one of the best gates in that part of Ipswich. Certainly, I cannot think of any better gates anywhere near.

It is not really an attraction .... Only a door gate. You spend literally 5min there. It is not really a daily thing

RESTORE IT BEFORE IT FALLS DOWN!
May 2015 • Solo
Stuck on a very busy, dirty road, this is all that remains of Wolsey's College. Not much else to see other than the gateway.

Should be the pride of Ipswich but it has been left to get in such a state of disrepair its criminal,whoever is responsible for the upkeep of this should be ashamed

Wolsey's Gate
Sep 2015
The Wolsey Gate sits next a busy one way road system. Not worth a special trip but if walking between the town centre and the Waterfront take a slight detour

Spooky goings on ! Do you believe in ghosts?,seen the choir boy?
Jul 2015 • Family
The reason for writing this the Wolsey gate is its stuck near a busy road in the past the drive ventured further out towards the flats! Now here is the spooky bit my daughter stayed with here friend across the road in the flats during the night she saw a choir boy walking towards her she thought she was dreaming and described the choir boy to me how she described him was like a choir boy would be dressed many many years a go! Dad she said it was SO real after doing a bit of history the drive or road to the church was almost in line with her friends flat my daughter hasn't the heart to tell her friend as it would freek her out but she dosnt want to sleep there again! Has any one else seen the choir boy who still walks the hallowed ground, also yes I have seen many a spirit but normally. When the person is dying and if you really want to get into ghosts try the spread eagle and watch the glasses fly off the shelf with no one near them! Or mc Guintys were the ghosts move bottles around in the cellar ask the owners!

Not much to see
Nov 2014 • Solo
There is not much to see here, just a Tudor brick gateway by the side of a very busy street. It is all that remains of Wolsey,s college and, as such, is a historical monument, but it is of little practical use.

This might not be the most stunning of monuments that you will ever see but if Henry VIII had not closed this college it could have grown to become one of the oldest universities in England. Real historical interest there...

One of the oldest buildings in the town
Dec 2012
Although only open to the public for visits on very limited occasions this wonderful building, which is in an excellent state of repair, can be viewed on passing by in the street. An even better view is obtained from the Ipswich and Suffolk Club's carpark. I never get tired of seeing the building, which I do on a very regular basis.
