“A real feel of historic Ipswich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

I have always loved going to the park and mansion, and have visited with partner, family and friends. The grounds are beautiful, well looked after and there is a little nature reserve walk, ducks, a brilliant park for kiddies and of course the mansion. The park hosts a fabulour free live music event every July which we always go to. (for this, I would advise taking your own grub as the prices are rather rediculous). The toilets are always nice and clean, and if you visit the mansion the staff are nice and very informative. A lovely day out for strolling, picnicing or having an icecream or something from the cafe in the mansion.

“Wonderful park close to town centre.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Christschurch park is wonderful to walk through at any time of the year. It is close to the town centre and a terrific facility for all age groups.
The Elizabethan house, Christchurch Mansion, which stands within Christschurch Park, is a must to visit. It has a charm all its own, with furniture and art-work from all periods of its history. The Wolsey Gallery contains,paintings by Constable and Gainsborough. The people of Ipswich are very fortunate to have such a lovely house to enter, whenever they wish.

Nice place to chill out - always kept clean and lots of events going on. Lots of dog walkers but its a big park so not really a problem.
