Jewl in the crown

Beautiful place, a jewel for Ipswich. Great place to visit if you are interested in social history. Take time afterwards for a walk around the park too.

Situated in Christchurch park the mansion looks beautiful from the outside and you aren't disappointed when going inside either. Lots of rooms to see all with period feel. Really recommend a visit!

Beautiful building with a wealth of history. Usually someone friendly to greet you as you enter, and answer any questions. There are many rooms to look around, plus an optional tour.

I take my 3 year old round the museum every now and then when we are at the park. It free which is great when trying to entertain the children on a budget.

Went to Christchurch Mansion quite by chance, as the NT property I had hoped to visit wasn't open on Tuesdays! Like another reviewer, I can't believe they don't charge for this house - not that I would want them to do so, as there really is something for everyone here. Precisely because there is no charge, you could even choose... More

Long established museum charting the history of Ipswich. Periodic exhibitions and the day I was there I caught an exhibition about John Constable which had several paintings from Tate Britain and other major galleries on loan
