    by wrightie in Activities & SocialSep 10, 2017 with 7 replies and 52 views.

    Ipswich has a long maritime history, yet its not celebrated, bar a few hidden displays.

A shed, dedicated to the craft of rope making and celebration of maritime heritage. If only the waterfront had something like this on a larger scale... not just about rope...

    Latest reply: It would be a very interesting experience to setup one of these escape rooms, set someone a challenge... I think the anonymous door and flights of stairs would probably add to the whole experience. Probably not the same for a first floor room...

    283 Compared to the Explore Ipswich Visitor Guide, the Ipswich Family Trail (although for a completely different audience) is actually really good.

    Latest reply: I have to admit it really pisses me off. They cannot "smells what sells"... the charity mass public participation event was a huge success. The fundraising element is irrelevant in the context but the borough and Ipswich Central must realise the...
