I work on the waterfront and what fabulous views. The area has a very different feel to the town centre and feels more aspirational

While visiting Ipswich we walked to the waterfront from our Ipswich hotel (Novotel). The waterfront is a lovely area for a stroll and to enjoy the interesting scenery. There are an abundance of restaurants with outdoor seating.

Spent many a time having a drink or meal at the Waterfront bars and restaurants. Nice leisurely stroll on a warm evening is very enjoyable. Looking quite modern now and clean.

Not so pleasant when its raining but gorgeous when the sun is out. A good selection of bars and restaurants/hotels. Central for most things, the main town only a 10 minute walk away. Definitely worth a visit.

A new area still being developed not too far from the town centre. The buildings are tastefully done and there are hotels, bars and restaurants all along the waterfront as well as a vast selection of boats moored in the harbour.
