Pocket Guide: Ipswich Custom House Hotels

The Old Customs house is a Grade II listed building located on Ipswich Waterfront in the county of Suffolk. Constructed in 1844, this magnificent structure serves as a reminder of the town's long maritime heritage, and while the Waterfront may have been modernised considerably in recent years, the Old Customs House maintains an important link to the past. This historic landmark is well worth a visit if you're staying in any nearby Suffolk hotels or hotels near Ipswich Waterfront, not least to admire its striking classical architecture.

Today, the Old Customs House is the home of the Ipswich Port Authority.

Explore Ipswich History and Heritage from Suffolk Hotels

The Old Customs House is a perhaps a bit of a misnomer, and it stands on the site of a much older Customs House that was probably in operation for over 500 years. The new Old Customs House (confusing, right?) was built in 1844, designed by architect J. M. Clark. The Old Customs House (the second one!) has recently been restored to its former glory, and is well worth stopping by if you're enjoying a day of heritage and culture, perhaps visiting Ipswich Museum and the Cornhill area.

Wherever you're staying in Suffolk Hotels, a trip to Ipswich is definitely worth your while. Suffolk's county town, Ipswich boats a vast number of culture and historic landmarks not just magnificent Victorian structures like Old Customs House, but also fantastic theatres such as the Regent and amazing museums such as Ipswich Transport Museum.
