In recent years the towns waterfront has developed around the University of Suffolk with bars, restaurants and decent car parking. It makes a pleasant stroll looking at the variety of boats, launches and yachts.

Lovely rejuvenated area of the town. Nice to visit day or night. A number of bars serving a wide range of wines and local alcohol, also a varied selection of snacks and bar food.
