Local Towns and Villages
Ipswich and Woodbridge offer good shopping and leisure facilities and, if you wish to go slightly further afield, Colchester is less than an hour away and Cambridge can be reached in just over an hour. Woodbridge has a small but very attractive waterfront cinema and restaurant complex, a theatre and plenty of pubs. Those looking for all these things plus a bit more will find them all in Ipswich, Colchester or Cambridge. Local sports clubs and leisure activities are always keen to recruit new members and players but if you would rather watch others exert themselves, Ipswich Town FC offers you the chance to watch Premiership football. If you wish to travel a little further there is Norwich City or Colchester FC. Support for Colchester is tolerated in South Suffolk but openly cheering for Norwich is one of the few known sure ways to ruffle the amiable Suffolk temperament.
