Get rid of the wine rack

Nice to have a stroll in the summertime and some nice bars and restaurants along the waterfront. Just need to get rid of that wine rack building once and for all.

Views of Ipswich Harbour/Marina. Quality bars & restaurants. Vibrant atmosphere. Inviting ambience. What is not to like about Ipswich Waterfront. If you had arrived here on holiday, you would be thrilled with the amenities. Staycation!!??

If you like boats & to people watch this is a must visit for you. Lovely place to walk or sit in or outside one of the many bars or restaurants situated around the Waterfront. Beautiful place when the sun is shining, maybe not so great for a stroll in the wet. A nice relaxing place to be.

Sat and had my lunch here on day. Lots of places to sit and eat either at a cafe or restaurant or your own. Beautiful on a sunny day and home to Ed Sheerham one of the pigs gone wild statues!!!

I love the ipswich waterfront and enjoy a regular visit. It's so pretty with a great selection of places to eat and drink or just people watch. I hope the empty flats can be finished to complete the overall look. Worth a visit!

We stayed at the Salthouse Hotel along this Waterfront and the Location is just perfect! You would never know you're in Ipswich, which is a good thing! Beautiful surroundings, lovely views over the Harbour and some great Bars and Restaurants. Highly recommended

I am one of those lucky people who lives on the Waterfront area in Ipswich. This is a perfect place where you can see an old english style mixed with modern architecture. A number of coffee shops, restaurants located at the front of river Orwell make this place very special.

The Ipswich dock is well worth a visit,restuarants,bars and a mass of boats,you can do Boat trips down the River Orwell to Harwich on a barge or go on a Boat that you can Hire that serves up a great meal,I took my wife and Family and they all thought it was a great evening.
