You can now go on a guided afternoon tea walk in Ipswich
PUBLISHED: 13:05 31 January 2018
Run by the Ipswich Tourist Guides Association, these themed walks explore some of the town’s most important places and end with refreshments in one of Ipswich’s top cafes
Throughout late winter and into spring these guided walks will give you fascinating insights into the town’s long and complex history. There’s also no better way to round off a walk than a lovely cup of tea and some sweet or savoury treats.
Every walk will follow a different theme and look at different parts of Ipswich, meaning you’ll learn something different with each walk you embark on.
Upcoming themes include ‘The Wonderful Women of Ipswich’, ‘Law and Disorder’, ‘Ipswich Medics’ and many more.
Starting from Ipswich Tourist Information Centre, the walks take 90 minutes and includes refreshments at one of the area’s many top-quality cafes in the £8 admission.
Previous themes have included ‘People behind the Plaques’ – a look at the many blue plaques around the town – and ‘An Ipswich Almanac’ where you’re taken around the sites of key events in the town’s history and development.
Every walk begins at 2pm and tickets can be purchased through the Ipswich Regent & Corn Exchange site here. Tickets can also be bought from Ipswich Tourist Information Centre.
