The findings come at a critical time for the town, tonight its playing host to officials from some of the biggest tourist attractions in the country....

    by dan5 in TourismJul 8, 2017 with 5 replies and 277 views.

    Is it about time we rebuilt some (or one) of Ipswich's historical gates for tourism purposes?This is something I have been wanting to explore for some time but hitting a brick-wall with no real representation of what any of the three main gates looked like (east gate, west gate and north gate)... until I stumbled across a post on Ipswich Society's facebook page containing a picture of the replica West Gate built for the Golden Jubilee in...

    Ipswich: shabby and rundown cesspit hell hole

    by Ipswi in TourismApr 25, 2017 with 3 replies and 130 views.

    Just over 5 years ago Ipswich callers phoned up a BBC Radio Suffolk breakfast show presented by current Ipswich Central chairman Terry Baxter to give their views on the town. Ben Gummer MP was shocked and angered over people commented on how "shabby and rundown" the town is with others going to extremes calling it a "cesspit" and "hell hole".

    Latest reply: Even with the controversial Cornhill project, this won't improve the state of the rest of the town centre.Unfortunately, none of the town's elite will listen to taxpayers and voters... it needs to be a well respected or well-known outsider to...
