My kids rode their bicycles along the waterfront while I flew my drone. Beautiful area to walk, relax, and fly a drone. It was a bit cold, but we had a great time.

On a blowy day you wiz round the quays, quick peak at yachts afloat then pop into one of the bars, cafes, restaurants available, not too many that it's spoilers but enough variety to suit everyone.

The waterfront was originally the Ipswich dock lands but over the years has been transformed into high profile property development with great bars restaurants and moorings for luxury yachts and boats

Had a great visit to Ipswich and discovered the Waterfront. Had coffee in one of the small cafes over looking the water. Very pleasant to wander around.

Working marina. Easy to while away an hour or so watching the busyness of the marina. And great spot for the photographer. Wish I had bought my camera. Not just a phone!
