Nice to wander around the mansion and was surprised to find such a large collection of Constable paintings as I honestly had no idea he was local to the area, brilliant that it's a free attraction

The mansion is a real gem, nestling in the centre of town but situated in Christchurch Park so it feels like a country manor house. Both park and house are free and the mansion is open on Sundays, unlike the museum. The house was a family house from the 16th century, after the land previously owned by the church was... More

I used to go here when I was a kid. It's amazing that it is free. There is just so much to see you need more than one visit. Volunteers are very knowledgeable and happy to chat. Have a closer look at the paintings. There are some really good ones.

A perfect place to visit in Ipswich ... old mansion with no charge (currently) for entry, in the middle of a beautiful park. What was cool, was the front facade was being worked on, but they had a huge mural of what it will look like when done, over the front. A pleasing look back in time with a nice... More

Very warm welcome, the volunteers at the mansion are clearly passionate about its history and are extremely knowledgeable. A beautiful building to walk around, learning loads about the town and it's past inhabitants. Some beautiful original artwork to see. A lovely afternoon spent looking around.
