My son and I decided to stretch our trip from Cambridge to London into several days, with one stop in Ipswich, mainly because I wanted to see the museum there.
It's not a major tourist town in the UK, but we both liked it there. Especially the waterfront area is really nice.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Good shopping and a lovely museum
  • Cons:Hard to get info about it
  • In a nutshell:It's worth a visit

    The museum sounds interesting but this internet "deal" at the hotel seems a bit of a rip-off!

    If the coast is there, I would definitely like Ipswich. Why do the British charge so much for accommodation? No wonder they themselves prefer to spend their holidays abroad.
