For the love of Bunny-bout and Ipswich Mountain - Ipswich.love

Dear Ipswich, How are things with you?

Thank you for all the very happy memories you’ve been a part of over the years. Although I have never been able to call myself a resident, I have loved visiting Ipswich and surrounding Suffolk destinations over the past 22 years, and I look forward to the future memories you will be a part of.

My many happy memories evolve around visiting and staying with my beloved grandparents and auntie and uncle. During our trips we would go for walks along Nacton shores, go on the Citysightseeing bus tour of Ipswich, visit nearby Felixstowe and Bury St Edmunds and spend time in the town.

I also must not forget the Ipswich Museum, Ipswich Transport Museum, trips to the “big Sainsbury’s” (Warren Heath) and B&M and Landguard Fort in Felixstowe!

We were always welcomed as children with the sight of the “Bunny-Bout” aka the roundabout at Ravenswood which always had rabbits on it to greet us! We also loved driving up ‘Ipswich Mountain’ (Devonshire Road).

Ipswich you are a very unique place, one which I will always hold dear to me and I’m very thankful for all the memories you’ve been a part of!
