Over the past few years, Ipswich has become known for its shopping, transport and business opportunities. New developments such as the Waterfront entertainment district and the University Campus Suffolk have put Ipswich on the map and made it a popular destination to visit.
The main shopping area is around the pedestrianised streets of Northgate Street, Tavern Street and Carr Street, which will be less than five minutes walk from the new McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development. Here, you’ll find all the large chain stores including Debenhams and Marks & Spencer. There are also two indoor shopping malls, the Buttermarket Centre and Tower Ramparts Shopping Centre. For eating out, the best restaurants are located around the waterfront, just at the end of your street. You’ll find everything from traditional British pub food to cuisines from all around the world.
