For the love of charm and kindness - Ipswich.love

Dear Ipswich, I hope you are having a great day.

I love Ipswich for its style, docks, town centre and small shops. I also love Ipswich for its charm and the kindness of its inhabitants. I will remember the delicious porridge I ate, the walks in the town and in the parks and its food. Thank you for these wonderful memories that marked my summer.

I loved my Ipswich Summers, we used to cycle down to Broomhill Swimming Pool, have the morning in the water and have a picnic lunch in Broomhill Park after, pure magic!
