Ipswich to Woodbridge

This route takes you from Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk, to the charming town of Woodbridge using a mixture of on-road and traffic-free sections.

Both towns offer a wealth of things to do ranging from museums to country parks.

Dating back to Anglo-Saxon times, Ipswich is steeped in history and boasts a range of fine buildings including medieval churches, the Ancient House, a Victorian Wet Dock and Christchurch Mansion, a fine Tudor home. Surrounded by a 70-acre landscaped park, Christchurch Mansion also houses a collection of paintings by John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough.

The riverside town of Woodbridge is overlooked by the Anglo-Saxon burial ground of Sutton Hoo. The town is also famous for its 8th-century Tide Mill which is thought to be one of the earliest Tide Mills in the UK.
