    Find Family Days Out In Ipswich

    There are lots of things to do in Ipswich!

    Get hands-on at The Science Project Discovery Centre where the whole family can take part in experiments of their choice. Have a go at building a body, unravel optical illusions, crack the mystery of the treasure chest and find out fun scientific facts to amaze your friends! After working out their minds, kids can get their heart rates up in the Indoor Adventure Playground, Snakes and Ladders, while the parents rest on comfy sofas with a hot drink.

    Does your child dream of being a fireman or policeman? Put them in the driver’s seat of their chosen career at the Ipswich Transport Museum. Small and family friendly, children will love exploring the 90 different vehicles from emergency services to buses, prams and even a hearse!

    When it comes to outdoor space you’re spoilt for choice on an Ipswich family day out. Holywells Park is spread over 67 acres of woodland and ponds. There’s a large play area and a paddling pool in the summer, which is a huge hit with local and visiting families. Christchurch Park has tennis courts; ancient trees and another play space, as well as year-round activities put on by the The Wildlife and Education Rangers.

    For indoor fun take to the slopes at Suffolk Ski Centre or the race track at Anglia Indoor Karting.
