Popular Afternoon Tea Walk Series Continues

The latest in the series of “Afternoon Tea Walks” arranged by the Ipswich Tourist Guides, takes place on Monday 29th January. Entitled “An Ipswich Almanac” the walk explores some of the major – and some of the quirky – events and happenings in Ipswich’s 1500 year history that helped shape the town – from the opening of the new Town Hall (celebrating 150 years this weekend) and the granting of a Royal Charter over 800 years ago, to the rudimentary provision of a Fire Service in the 16th Century.

The Walk commences at the town’s Tourist Information Centre, St Stephen’s Church, at 2.00pm, and ends at Pickwick’s Tea Room, Dial Lane, for tea and cake. Tickets cost £8.00 – which includes the refreshments – and must be purchased in advance from the Tourist Information Centre, telephone 01473 258070 or visit www.ipswichregent.com.

The series of Afternoon Tea Walks – covering many aspects and themes of Ipswich’s history – continues throughout the winter and spring with each one ending for refreshments at one of the town’s independent tea rooms. A leaflet regarding the walks is available at the Tourist Information Centre.
