As well as being the oldest recorded town in England, Ipswich is also the largest town in Suffolk. Its name comes from Gippeswick and it was in turn a Stone Age, Iron Age, Roman and Anglo Saxon settlement. The Saxons used the North Sea to trade the locally made cloth with the continent of Europe and it was this that made the town rich.

Cardinal Thomas Wolsey was born in Ipswich, around 1475 and in 1528 he founded a college, which is now Ipswich school. Lord and Lady Nelson lived in Ipswich in the early 1800’s, when Nelson was at High Steward of the town.

Charles Dickens visited Ipswich in 1835 and the tavern where he stayed, today named the White Horse Hotel, featured it in his novel The Pickwick Papers.

Today Ipswich continues to flourish, with several millions tons of cargo passing through the port each year. Many of the old dockside buildings have, or are being renovated and developed into modern business and residential properties.
