One of the nicest parts of Ipswich. Lined with restaurants, eateries, cafes bars and pubs there is a lot to explore. Food along here is varied and ranges in price. A nice classy area of Ipswich.

Nicest part of the town and nice for a relaxed walk. There are some nice places to eat and drink nearby. Not far from the cinema too so a great place for a relaxed weekend afternoon.

The sun was out and we had a lovely stroll along the Quay. Lovely place to sit in the sun and have a drink or a bite to eat.
