Ipswich has a little gem in its Tourist Information Centre. The fact that it is in a converted church works in its favour and does not seem incongrous in any way. It's laid out in such a way for anyone to navigate easily and combines...More

Staff helpful. Good range of information leaflets & giftware. Can recommend a guided tour from here around the west of the town centre - saw lots of interesting places/buildings/statues & learnt about lots of different people. Often quirky, not obvious places.
