Having lived in Ipswich for many years it is easy to take the Cornhill for granted and I have often been surprised at the very positive comments from visitors, many from abroad. Taking a fresh look at the Town Hall, the former Post Office and the arch opposite and you realise how impressive they are. There is a lively market... More

My daughter and I arrived there on saturday afternoon to find a street marke closing down but everything looked totally run down. I found the area pretty sad and a waste of going down to see.

We did. Had a quick mooch around and it's as beautiful inside as it is out. The market on the square tried to hide it, but the stunning exterior caught my eye, so we wandered over and wandered in. You should too. Some beautiful things to see. And I imagine it has far more impact on the square when the... More

This is very much the heart of Ipswich with the Town Hall standing on one side of the Princes Street junction and what was the Post Office on the other. There have been many changes and yet more are scheduled soon. The Corn Exchange stands immediately behind the Town Hall, where on a Tuesday market day farmers and local business... More

The old town hall (1878), normally open for wedding bookings in the large upstairs hall, and now the lower floor is a cafe/tea room, to the rear is the Corn Exchange.

Grand old building. Gets a bit lost with the market outside. But still impressive and a real Ipswich landmark.
